July 1, by Owen Pawson, B. The CCDC-2 is the standard construction contract commonly used across Canada between a building owner and the prime contractor when the work is done for a fixed price or lump sum. This article summarizes some significant changes in the CCDC-2 that have an impact on engineers in their role as consultants. The contractor must report any presence of mould at the place of the work and take steps to avoid sickness, injury or damage to people and property.

The owner must retain an expert if it does not agree with the contractor regarding the existence, significance or cause of the mould or steps to be taken. The responsible party must indemnify the other and pay for any loss, costs or delay. It can be more easily amended over time than CCDC-2 as the insurance industry amends policy coverage. Accordingly, engineers should ensure they have their own coverage for negligence.

Direct impact on engineers Administration of the construction contract. Now, in GC 2. Instead, administration of the contract by the consultant is linked to the time it takes the contractor to perform its obligations under the contract. Also, now in GC 2. Shop drawings. In the new GC 3. Also, in GC 3. Finally, in GC 3. In GC 5. However, the consultant must now also provide a copy of that certificate to the contractor.

Previously under GC 5. As with GC 5. Changes in the work In GC 6. The new GC 6. The consultant must then deliver findings in writing within 30 days from receiving the claim unless the parties agree otherwise. Protection of work and property In the new GC 9. If the owner and contractor do not agree on the existence or significance of the hazardous substance, or if the substance was brought to the place of the work by the contractor or anyone for whom the contractor is responsible, then the owner is required to retain and pay for an independent qualified expert to make a determination.

In GC 9. Any artifacts discovered belong to the owner. However, the contractor must take precautions to prevent their removal or damage. Indemnification In the previous GC 12, the contractor indemnified both the owner and consultant. Now, the CCDC-2 requires only that the contractor and the owner indemnify each other.

The consultant is no longer indemnified. Engineers should determine whether they can address this risk by supplementary conditions or their own insurance or indemnity provisions in the Client-Engineer agreement or a combination. The indemnity for third party claims is unlimited for direct loss for personal injury or damage to property.

Even with the improvements to the standard CCDC-2 contract, it is likely that the parties to the contract will continue to require Supplementary Conditions that address their individual requirements and that reflect the specifics of the project. Owen Pa.
