Conditions of contract for building and civil engineering - Design and construct

"Purchasers of the standard will receive a link to download the Schedules to the General Conditions of Contract in Microsoft Word format. Standards New Zealand has consulted with the Inland Revenue Department on buyer created tax invoices, and has confirmation that NZS 3916:2013 (as per its predecessor NZS 3910:2003) will continue to permit engineers to issue buyer created tax invoices under section 25 (3A) of the GST Act 1985.

Provides a standard form of general conditions of contract for incorporation into construction contract documents. This standard is similar to NZS 3910:2013, but has been adapted to provide for the situation where the Contractor is responsible for design as well as construction. It enables the Principals, Engineers and Contractors 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. It contains essential commercial provisions aligned with the requirements of the Construction Contracts Act 2002. This new standard was developed following a ‘limited technical review’ of NZS 3910:2003, which focused only on feedback from the construction sector, and resulted in clearer wording and a reduced need for extensive special conditions. It includes Word form schedules that may be completed with project specific details.
