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.

USE Those who have previously used the ICE Conditions will find the new ICC Infrastructure Conditions of Contracts familiar. Little change should be required to the administrative process other than to ensure the recent legislative changes which relate to payment are properly accommodated.
Generally clients, consultants and contractors have a wide choice of ICC Contracts which can provide for their chosen version. Provision within the contracts for the inclusion of "Special Conditions" ensures that any special contractual arrangements can both be accommodated and made clear to the parties to the contract.
