Complex projects contract
The Complex Projects Contract was developed by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). It was called the 'Contract for Use with Complex Projects, First Edition 2013'. It was also referred to as the 'Complex Projects Contract 2013' or 'CPC 2013'.
Launched on 23 April 2013, it was thought to be the world's first contract specifically aimed at the management of time in complex construction and engineering projects. It was also the first standard form contract to cater for Building Information Modelling (BIM).
In November 2015, the Complex Projects Contract was updated and renamed the Time and Cost Management Contract to better reflect its intended objectives.
