SIA New Building Contract

The Sub-Committee has been formed and tasked to work on a new version of SIA Building Contract since September 2011.

Professor Justin Sweet has been appointed to work with the Sub-Committee to draft the new version of SIA forms of Contract including D&B Contract for local and international uses.

The main features of the new version of SIA forms of Contract are:

  • to retain the spirit of Duncan Wallace’s provisions;
  • to pro-business;
  • to be in plain English and short sentences;
  • to avoid dispute by identifying risks and allocating risks so that parties are able to work on the risks or price for the risks in their tender; amd
  • to provide single point project management approach under the Architect.

The new version of SIA forms of Contract would be scheduled to publish in third quarter of 2014.
