Steve du Toit is a former attorney and currently an independent 2010 consultant who has many years of experience providing legal advice and commercial support to the construction, engineering and mining industries. In 2007 he joined the JBCC as an Executive Officer and thereafter took up a position as a Director at a leading construction consulting firm before leaving in 2011 to form his own consulting company.
As a result of this extensive experience coupled with his current client requirements, he has established himself as a leading expert with regards to the inner workings of the GCC and JBCC Suite of Contracts as well as their application. Steve expertly blends his expertise with keen foresight and his training courses are always highly practical and informative.
Steve says that, ” fast-paced and high profile projects are re-shaping the construction industry and with these come legal developments, disputes and issues arising from the complexities of the contracts. Any construction contract needs to be carefully drafted and managed to avoid exposing your organisation to severe financial penalties and turning a potentially profitable project into a loss-making one! So, in order to be profitable, a sound contract is vital and all risk factors that can be eliminated must be, because of my client base I work extensively every day with both the GCC and the JBCC 6.1 Edition so my courses will teach you how to use both of these contracts in a real-world construction environment.”
