Update on revision of NZS 3910:2003 three Standards to be published in place of one

Issue 50 – June 2013

A revision of NZS 3910 Conditions of contract for building and engineering construction is underway. Based on feedback from the sector, three Standards will be published in place of one. The three Standards, which are tailored for user requirements, are:

  • NZS 3910 Conditions of Contract for building and civil engineering – Construction

  • NZS 3916 Conditions of contract for building and civil engineering – Design and construction

  • NZS 3917 Conditions of Contract for building and civil engineering – Term maintenance.

The committee has now completed the public comment meetings and has discussed and carefully considered the 1000 public comments received.

The final meeting is scheduled for mid-July 2013 and be expected publication date for the three Standards is late-September 2013.

NZS 3910 is the most widely used standard form of contract conditions in New Zealand. It provides a standard form of general conditions of contract that can be adapted to incorporate into construction contract documents.
