Goodman Derrick supports the publication of the CECA Generic Form of Sub-Contract for use by the civil engineering industry

Goodman Derrick LLP was delighted to support the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) in the publication of the CECA Generic Form of Sub-Contract in September 2020. Tom Pemberton, Partner of Goodman Derrick LLP, drafted the CECA Generic Form of Sub-Contract in collaboration with Mark Bezzant of Bezzant Ltd.

Tom has provided CECA members with training, guidance, and advice for many years, and the new Sub-Contract has been designed to complement existing blueprints.

As stated on CECA’s web-site, the Generic Form of Sub-Contract can be used with a variety of main contracts for civil engineering projects of any description and value, including bespoke and client specific contracts, and will support the government’s strategy (which is supported by CECA) in the Construction Playbook of achieving a leaner, greener and more collaborative construction industry.

If you would like further information about the CECA Generic Form of Sub-Contract, please contact Tom at or on +44 (0)20 7421 7908.
