Canadian Construction Documents Committee plans standard contract form seminars
The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) will conduct a series of seminars across Canada this fall to introduce its suite of standard contract forms to be used in conjunction with the construction management project delivery method.
In Ontario, sessions have been scheduled in seven cities next month.
CCDC secretary Eric Lee, the senior director of industry practices at the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), said the seminars will start with an overview of this project delivery method.
Pros and cons will be discussed from the perspective of both owners and contractors. “We will then provide an in-depth analysis of the three new contracts,” Lee said.
The documents are:
•CCDC 5A, to be used when the construction manager acts as an agent of the owner, providing advisory services.
•A new companion document CCDC 17, which applies when the owner contracts directly with the trade contractors to perform the construction work; and
•CCDC 5B, to be used when the construction manager provides pre-construction advisory services to the owner and then undertakes actual construction.
In that case, the construction manager engages trade contractors as subcontractors and is responsible for their performance.
CCDC 5A replaces CCA standard contract document 5-1988, while CCDC 17 takes the place of CCA 17-1966.
CCDC 5B is brand new.
Seminars will be conducted by members of CCDC, a national joint committee which is responsible for the development, production and review of standard Canadian construction contracts, forms and guides.
In Ontario, half-day seminars are scheduled for:
•Nov. 4 in Mississauga.
•Nov. 5 in London.
•Nov. 8 in Barrie and Richmond Hill.
•Nov. 9 in Cambridge and Hamilton.
•Nov. 10 in Ottawa.
CCDC has representation from the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies-Canada, Construction Specifications Canada and Architecture Canada, in addition to CCA and public and private sector owners.
