April 9, 2018 – The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) is launching a series of cross-country seminars—running from April to May 2018—that will introduce new and updated documents, with a particular focus on project delivery methods—including the new CCDC 30 “Integrated project delivery contract”—and procurement and contracting requirements.
The seminars are conducted by CCDC members who have worked on the development of the documents, reports the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), and will provide background on “key provisions, significant changes to previous documents, and deliver valuable takeaways for those in attendance”.
Each seminar will be split into morning and afternoon sessions, with a bonus lunch presentation available to all attendees, who can choose to attend one session or both.
The morning session, “Project delivery: choosing the best method”, will introduce the new CCDC 10 “A guide to construction project delivery methods” as well as the new CCDC 30.
The afternoon session will focus on procurement and contracts, and showcase several best practices. It will introduce the new CCDC 23 “A guide to calling bids and awarding construction contracts”. The session will also introduce the new CCDC Master Specification for Division 00 “Procurement and contracting requirements”.
The bonus lunch presentation will cover CCDC 9A and 9B, (Statutory Declarations), CCDC 11 “Contractors qualification statement” and CCDC 40 “Mediation and arbitration rules”. Attendees will also receive electronic versions of the new CCDC 23, CCDC Master Specification for Division 00, CCDC 9A/9B, CCDC 11 and CCDC 40.
“Any participant in the construction industry […]—and any party involved in the construction project supply chain—should have plenty to take away from these sessions,” said Mark Mulholland, CCDC chair.
