ACEC is proud to announce that Document 31 “Engineering Agreement Between Client and Engineer” will be released at the ACEC Summit in June 2009, complete with an updated Guide that provides supplementary and explanatory information for the preparation and use of the new Document 31.

The ACEC Contracts Committee has been working diligently for the past five years to produce the new Document 31. The new document is a major rewrite of Document 31 -1996 and was prepared primarily for small to medium sized projects which may lead to construction and where the Engineer is either the lead (prime) consultant or one of several consultants involved in the project. Document 31 has been reformatted to incorporate Schedules to identify and describe the Services and Fees and to permit users to execute the document in either a paper or on-line electronic form.

Check the ACEC website after the Summit to access your copy of Document 31 at www.acec.ca.Documents are free of charge for ACEC Member Firms.
