This is the latest issue of the ABIC Simple Works contract, launched in 2018, and can only be used for residential building projects. Under the Building Act (Act), projects for residential Prescribed Building Work, with a contract price of more than $12,000 must use a compliant form of contract like the SW H NT. The SW H NT adopts the optional progress payment arrangement, not the standard stage payments under the Act.

The SW contract should be selected to suit each individual project, taking account of its complexity, value and any specific project issues or requirements. Compared to the Major Works (MW) contract, the SW does not provide contract mechanisms for:

--urgent instructions --separable parts to the works (staged practical completion) --change of type of security --security from owner to contractor --dangerous or contaminated materials --encroachments --quality assurance systems --separate contractors.

The SW H NT also provides a mechanism for the owner to pay the contractor a deposit. The deposit amount is a pre-payment of the contract price, capped to the limit specified in the Building Regulations. See the User Guide for more information on the deposit limits and how the mechanism for payment works under the ABIC 2018 contracts.

Included in this contract pack is 3 copies of the contract and an Information Statement for the Owner.

A Reference Copy for the architect or contractor is available for sale, if you would like to see the whole contract.
