The ACE - Association for Consultancy and Engineering, produces three different types of construction appointments, agreements and contracts.
ACE Agreements 2009
ACE Agreements are the industry-standard documents for the appointment of consultancy and engineering professionals. In these new 2009 editions of the agreements, the original principles of the ACE Agreements are maintained but the documents have also been updated and simplified. This means more user-friendly Agreements, offering greater versatility for both clients and consultants.
ACE/CECA Infrastructure Conditions of Contract - ICC Contracts
The Infrastructure Conditions of Contract (ICC) is a standard suite of conditions of contract for infrastructure contracts jointly sponsored by the Association of Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA).
The ICC contracts were published in 2011 to replace the ICE Conditions of Contract and have a similar structure and approach to the contractual process. Separate versions of the ICC Conditions of Contract cater for a variety of types of contract with Guidance Notes to explain their use in practical terms. The suite also includes a Partnering Addendum.
