NZS 3910:2023 provides a standard form of general conditions of contract for incorporation into construction contract documents. It enables the parties to the contract to quickly establish contractual arrangements that deliver a wide variety of building and civil engineering projects. Contracts based on this standard will be comprehensive but at the same time easy to understand and will reflect fair-risk allocation between the parties. The standard contains essential commercial provisions aligned with the requirements of the Construction Contracts Act 2002. An overarching objective of the revised NZS 3910:2023 is to lessen the need to add special conditions of contract, thereby improving consistency, familiarity and efficiency in construction contracting.
