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. The 2018 revised editions of the ABIC Major Works (MW) and Simple Works (SW) commercial and domestic documents, along with the MW H and SW H documents for domestic projects, are now available under the relevant state and territory pages. For a revised edition of the ABIC Basic Works (commercial) contract refer to ABIC Basic Works BW 2018.
Note: Parties can continue to use pre-2018 ABIC issues of MW, SW and BW for a short transition period (to allow for projects tendered on pre-2018 issues and to use existing inventory). The ABIC authors will soon withdraw the right to use all pre-2018 contracts and we encourage all users to purchase and use the 2018 contracts and related documents.
