"The ICE Design and Construct Conditions of Contract" were originally published over 10 years ago. This edition updates the original contract with changes necessitated by new or amended legislation. As well as several substantial changes and numerous minor ones, the contract has been carefully edited to improve its clarity and usability. "ICE Design and Construct Conditions of Contract: 2nd edition" is not a variant of the Measurement Version but an entirely separate set of conditions based on very different premises. "ICE Design and Construct Conditions of Contract: 2nd edition" radically departs from the normal ICE Conditions of Contract concept by making the Contractor responsible for all aspects of design and construction, including any design originally provided by or on behalf of the Employer.The Form of Tender provides for payment on a lump sum basis but other forms of payment may be used. This new edition of the "Contract" has been updated to include the benefits of team working and current procurement initiatives. If the procedures are followed, the parties to the Contract will be provided with an 'early warning' of circumstances that may give rise to additional costs or delay in completion of the Contract. The "Contract" has been revised and updated to deal with the following legislation: the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994; The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996; The Finance Act 1996 and the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996; The Contracts (Rights of third parties) Act 1999; and, The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991.
