ICC With Quantities Version 2014 The Infrastructure Conditions of Contract (ICC) were formerly known as the ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers) conditions of contract first published in 1945 by the ICE. In November 2014, a new edition of the ICC was launched, known as the ‘with quantities’ version (‘ICC with Quants’). This had followed a major review of the form and consultation process driven by a desire to update a contract which had not been significantly updated for over 50 years. The new form has been completely re-written and features a radical new approach to the drafting of these conditions. It is shorter and more succinct than the previous ICE/ICC contracts, and introduces several significant changes. Its most important feature is that it provides for lump sum pricing to be the default valuation mechanism while re-measurement is retained as an alternative option. Although this form is referred to as the ‘With Quantities’ version, it is intended to be the contract of choice for most civil engineering works. The pre-2014 forms of the ICC (see Practice Note: ICC Measurement Version 2011) are still in use and continue to be available, although it is intended that after a period these will be replaced by the more modern form. Scheme of the contract in outline The conditions are accompanied by Works Data (which includes contractor’s proposals and employers requirements), a form of tender,
ICC Target Cost Version 2018 The Infrastructure Conditions of Contract (ICC) for Civil Engineering Works originated in 1945 as the ICE Conditions of Contract. Following various updates, 2014 saw a major revision and the publication of a new ‘With Quantities Version’ (see Practice Note: ICC With Quantities Version 2014). In June 2018, two new ICC contracts were published—the Target Cost (TC) Version and the Design and Construct Version (see Practice Note: ICC Design and Construct Version 2018). This Practice Note provides guidance on the ICC TC Version 2018. In 2011, the Association for Consultancy and Engineering published the first edition of the TC Version. That was based upon the ICE Conditions of Contract 7th edition and modified for target cost use. The 2018 TC Version is completely rewritten and follows the approach and drafting of the 2014 Without Quantities Version. However, the 2011 TC Version and the 2018 TC Version have the same collaborative approach of the parties jointly managing risk. Many clauses in the 2014 With Quantities Version and the 2018 TC Version are identical. However, changes relating in particular to valuation, cost and payment are significant, reflecting the intention to share the losses and benefits of cost overruns and savings. Scheme of the contract in outline The contract includes a form of tender and works data specifying the works and the extent to which any design is to

Can the ICE Conditions of Contract still be used? The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) previously published the 'ICE Conditions of Contract'. These were standard terms for use on civil engineering projects, which were first published in 1945. The ICE decided however to withdraw the ICE Conditions of Contract from sale, and instead, solely endorse the NEC3 suite of contracts. This took effect in August 2011. The ICE Conditions of Contract have since been updated and rebranded as the Infrastructure Conditions of Contract (ICC) (see Practice Note: ICC Measurement Version 2011)—the
