The Australian Building Industry Contracts (ABIC) are jointly published by Master Builders Australia Limited (Master Builders) and the Australian Institute of Architects (Institute). They are intended for use in building projects where an architect administers the contract.
Parties can continue to use the ABIC 2008 issues of MW, SW and BW for a short transition period in 2018 (to allow for projects tendered on the 2008 issues and to use existing inventory). The ABIC authors will soon withdraw the right to use all 2008 contracts and we encourage all users to purchase and use the 2018 contracts and related documents.
The 2018 revised editions of the ABIC Major Works, Simple Works (commercial and domestic) and Basic Works (commercial) documents are now available on the ABIC contracts page.
