Read the Contracts: Deep Dive into CCDC-2 with ECABC

Course Description: Exploring CCDC-2 Construction Contract

80% of the people managing construction do not read, do not understand or are not following the construction contracts in place between the two organizations! This creates problems for both the owner and the contractor as well as the other participants involved with the project (consultant, subcontractors, and suppliers). The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) and the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) publishes standard contracts and guides for the construction industry.

In this four-hour virtual instructor-led workshop the bidding process will be reviewed (Expression of Interest (EOI), Request for Qualifications (RFQ), Request for Proposals (RFP), Contract A, Contract B), the difference between a Letter of Intent and Letter of Award (one of which one is simply an agreement to agree) and the terms and conditions of the CCDC-2 Stipulated Price Construction Contract.

Contract Guides covered on the workshop:

  • CCDC-00 – Guide to Use of CCDC Master Specification for Division 00 – Procurement and Contracting
  • CCDC-10 – A Guide to Construction Project Delivery Methods
  • CCDC-20 – Guide to the use of CCDC-2 Stipulated Price Contract
  • CCDC-23 – Guide to the Call and Awarding of Construction Contracts
  • CCDC-21 – Guide to Construction Insurance
  • CCDC-22 – Guide to Construction Surety Bonds
  • CCDC-24 – Guide to Model Forms
  • CCDC-29 – Guide to Prequalification
  • CCDC-40 – Rules for Mediation and Arbitration of Construction Industry Disputes
  • CCA 53 – A Trade Contractors Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts

Who should attend?

Anyone whose work is described in construction contracts: owners, consultants, project managers, construction managers, superintendents and estimators of all levels will benefit from the workshop.
