AIBC Presentation October 13th, 2022
Understanding the New CCDC 2 2020 Contract and CCDC Div. 01 Hosted by Glenn Chatten
What it means for not only Owners and Contractors, but for Manufacturing Reps, Designers and Architects. In the Fall of 2020, in collaboration with the CCA and the CSC, the Canadian Construction Documents Committee introduced the newly revised CCDC 2 Contract and a new Master Specification Div.01. This incorporated several important changes within the Stipulated Sum General Contract between the Owner and the Contractor with the intent of eliminating several cumbersome Supplemental Conditions that had existed in the CCDC 2 2008 Contract. A Div. 01 was also created to aid in understanding the bridge between these contractual obligations and the technical specifications.
Two years have passed since this new contract has been implemented and there are still some lingering questions and possible misunderstandings that arise from its inception.
This presentation will summarize and illustrate these revisions, additions and deletions that not only apply to the Owner and Contractor, but also to those associated with providing the design and manufactured product assemblies to the construction process itself (Architects and Manufacturing Reps).
To understand a Contract is to understand a trusted relationship which builds upon and includes all those associated with that relationship.
