Contract forms and documents
The industry-specific contracts are based on mutual contractual practices within the building industry. In order to make the implementation of these practices as flexible as possible, Building Information has produced various examples, ranging from general contract documents to consumer documents and property surveys for house sales.
Comparing tenders or interpreting contracts is easy due to the established contractual practices and standardised document templates in the construction sector. In this respect, shared terminology is important. Some of the documents are also available in English.
Our publications provide instructions for good design and building practices, aiming at solutions that are technically correct, cost-conscious implementation and guidelines that are in accordance with the law.
The information content is produced in Building Information or in cooperation with the government, organisations, companies and writers. Our range of English- and multilingual books on architecture are also available for international markets.
