INTRODUCTION

Since it first launched its new edition GCC contract, the GCC drafting committee launched its third edition in 2015.  The GCC 2015 contract will be familiar to those used to the 2010 edition but includes some interesting innovations and improvements, including:

The contract is suitable for use in disciplines other than civil engineering. It is suitable for building works, civil engineering works and electrical and mechanical works or a combination of these. GCC 2015 recognises that multidisciplinary projects are often best served by a versatile multi-disciplinary contract;

The contract is suitable for employer designed and contractor designed works;

The contract has received the CIDB tick of approval and meets CIDB best practice requirements.

BCA envisages that the wide ambit of the new GCC will mean increased take up of this document. Contractors and clients from the building environment who in the past would not have looked to GCC may now consider it for their building projects. Those looking for a local contract for multi-disciplinary projects will also look to GCC 2015.  If you work in the building environment and have never considered GCC, now is the time to look to it as a sound local contract for building works.

A  GCC 2015 compatible Subcontract document, currently being drafted by BCA for SAICE, will be shown at the course.
