The MMCD Association is a non-profit society, founded in 1995 and supported by BC municipalities to create improved construction documents for roads, sidewalks, sewers, water, traffic signals and street lighting. The Province of British Columbia endorses the Master Municipal Construction Documents for the construction of municipal services.
The MMCD Association originated with the BC Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association, the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of B.C., and the Municipal Engineers Division of Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C.
The association produced our common document --the MMCD-- to address inconsistent tender documents used in British Columbia. Now, over 90 municipalities use the MMCD on a regular basis.
Continuing development of the MMCD includes new and expanded editions of the document, new publications, training for users and referees, and research into new aspects of construction contracts.
Volunteer sub-committees create, monitor, and improve the documents. Volunteers are drawn from municipal staff, ACECBC members, BCRBHCA members and related industry representatives.
Using the MMCD reduces effort compared to creating and maintaining unique contract documents. The straightforward language used in MMCD front-end documents minimizes confusion and reduces disputes.
