This 2020 edition of CCDC’s flagship document features some important and well-needed changes, including a new approach towards payment legislations, the addition of provisions addressing early occupancy, and the introduction of the new ‘Ready-for-Takeover’ project milestone.
We will continue to sell the 2008 registration numbers and seals until the end of 2021. However, we do encourage the use and adoption of the new version, and as such we will be happy to exchange any old seals for the new ones at no extra cost. To facilitate this exchange, please contact Sherry Morrell or Karla Ramirez in VRCA’s planroom.

This new document is a first of its kind, as it is intended for use between project owners and their consultant (specifically, consulting engineers). This contract was adopted from the ACEC 31, at the request of ACEC. This contract allows for various types of remuneration, including the use of fixed fees, fees based on the value of the work, fees based on time-based rates or any combination therein. The CCDC 31 clearly outlines the scope of the consultant’s professional services with Schedule A, which allows users to select the specific duties of the consultant for the project.
The target audience for this document is project owners and consulting engineering companies.
