DATE: Thursday, August 30, 2018
FACILITY: VRCA Vancouver
8:30 A.M. – 11:45 A.M. – Project Delivery – Choosing the Best Method
A successful construction project can rely on a number of factors, but is most often described as a project that is completed on-time and on-budget. There are many factors to achieve a successful project, but a critical decision is the selection of the right project delivery model to deliver the project.
This CCDC Seminar session will focus on that process and project delivery. It will introduce the new CCDC 10 ‘A Guide to Construction Project Delivery Methods’ as well as the new CCDC 30 ‘Integrated Project Delivery Contract,’ the first IPD contract in Canada.
11:45 A.M. – 12:45 P.M. – Bonus Lunch Session
If you register for a half day, or a full day, you are welcome to attend the lunch session on the following new and updated documents:
- CCDC 9A and 9B ‘Statutory Declarations’
- CCDC 11 ‘Contractors Qualification Statement’
- CCDC 40 ‘Mediation and Arbitration Rules’
12:45 P.M. – 4 P.M. – Understanding Procurement and Contracting
When undertaking any construction project, the procurement process and contracting requirements are an integral step in the process. By utilizing best practices when calling bids and awarding contracts, all stakeholders can benefit by avoiding costly misunderstandings, disputes and delays.
This CCDC Seminar session will focus on some of those best practices in the procurement process. It will introduce the new CCDC 23 ‘A Guide to Calling Bids and Awarding Construction Contracts,’ a flagship and industry-leading document for procurement authorities, as well as the new CCDC Master Specification for Division 00 ‘Procurement and Contracting Requirements.’ This new master specification is a first for CCDC, and is part of a longer-term effort to introduce more specification documents through CCDC.
