Standard prime contact between Owner and Prime Contractor to perform the required work for a single, pre-determined fixed price or lump sum, regardless of Contractor’s actual costs.
CCDC 2 – 2008 Stipulated Price Contract became available in early 2008, after a number of years undergoing revision. The document includes a number of significant changes from the 1994 version, as well as some articles which have not changed from the previous version and continue to be of concern to architects.
The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) has completed an intensive review and revision process for CCDC 2 – the standard stipulated price construction contract which is used extensively on projects across Canada. Revisions reflect changing industry practice in some cases and improvements to existing articles for clarification.
It is unusual for either architects and/or clients to utilize CCDC contracts without any supplementary conditions. The publishing of these recommendations does not preclude the incorporation of additional items by clients and/or architects in order to address specific project conditions.
