The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) has published a new version of the Schedules of Dayworks Carried out Incidental to Contract Work, the standard industry contract for the construction of infrastructure schemes.
The new two volume version can be used for either, i) pricing of work undertaken on a daywork basis where no other schedules are included with contract documentation, using volumes 1 & 2, or ii) pricing of standalone projects where appropriate, using only volume 2.
The new titles are Volume 1 – Schedules of Dayworks Carried Out Incidental to Contract Work Including Rail Equipment Items and Volume 2 – Schedules of Contractors Equipment Rates for use on Construction Contracts Including Rail Equipment Items.
Rates and prices included in Vols 1 & 2 of the Schedules apply to work carried out on a Daywork basis on or after the date of publication. Equipment rates have been recalculated to reflect current costs and rail equipment items have been included to fully reflect the range of works undertaken.
The publication is available from CECA at 1 Birdcage walk, London SW1H 9JJ and cost £20.00 to CECA members and £45.00 to non-members. It is available to buy online in hard copy only here.
Commenting, CECA Chief Executive Alasdair Reisner said: “We are delighted to publish these industry-standard documents which have been modernised and updated to reflect the contemporary market.
“The use of Dayworks in construction and infrastructure projects drives efficiencies, and allow a larger number of contractors to bid for particular schemes, delivering value for the customer and ultimately the UK taxpayer.”
