The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) will be providing online training in November on two important documents being published this winter.
The first of these is the new 2020 version of the CCDC 2 ‘Stipulated Price Contract’, which will introduce some very important changes to the industry. The second is the brand new CCDC Master Specification for Division 01 ‘General Requirements’. This document is a fully editable specification template, similar to the Division 00 document published in 2018.
The online training for both documents will be held in November and feature four distinct presentations:
Presentation 1: An introduction to CCDC
This 20-minute opening presentation will summarize the operation of CCDC, including how the documents are developed, the new documents coming this winter, and what documents the committee is currently working on.
Presentation 2: Changes to CCDC 2
This 120-minute presentation will provide an in-depth explanation of the biggest and most crucial changes in the new version of the CCDC 2 ‘Stipulated Price Contract’. This includes the “Ready-for-Takeover” project milestone, provisions regarding early-occupancy by owner, how new provincial legislations like the Ontario Construction Act are addressed, and more. This presentation will also include a 30-minute Q&A period for attendees to pose their questions directly to some of the document’s authors.
Presentation 3: The new Division 01
This 90-minute presentation will introduce the brand-new Master Specification for Division 01 ‘General Requirements’. Attendees will learn about the key provisions of this new document and how to get the most out of its use. This presentation will also include a 15-minute Q&A period for attendees to pose their questions directly to some of the document’s authors.
Presentation 4: The top five questions
This final presentation will be 60 minutes in length, and feature members of the CCDC committee answering some of the most important questions received during the various sessions of the second and third presentations.
An introduction to CCDC and The top five questions presentations will be entirely pre-recorded. Registrants will be able to view these at their own convenience. Two sessions of both the Changes to CCDC 2 and The new Division 01 presentations will be held during fixed time slots every day beginning November 16 and ending November 27. The CCDC 2 presentation will be held at 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. and at 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. (ET), while the Division 01 presentation will be held at 11:00 – 12:30 p.m. and at 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. (ET). While registrants are welcome to select any session to attend, we recommend that attendees register for specific sessions based on their region to ensure that the Q&A period is more relevant to everyone’s local practices. These regional recommendations can be found at the bottom of this page.
The registration fee for the training is $400 plus applicable taxes, with a $150 discount for each additional registrant from the same firm. This includes access to all four presentations and copies of the new CCDC 2 and Division 01 documents, an approximate value of $400.
Each of the sessions for presentations 2 and 3 will be capped at 50 attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear directly from CCDC document authors. Register today!
