The Master Municipal Construction Documents (MMCD) provide a framework and foundation for municipal infrastructure projects. The MMCD Standard Specifications and Drawings have become widely accepted across British Columbia as the tendering and contract administration tools for municipal infrastructure projects. The collective perspectives of government, consultants, contractors, and owners have combined to create a fair, equitable solution to this often complex part of getting things done.
The MMCD has been built on three primary principles:
- The language was developed only through consensus of representatives of the three parties involved (owner, contractor and consultant)
- The documents were created under a mandate for fairness
- The documents are easy to understand and to use
Note: MMCD eBooks cannot be saved on shared company servers. Licenses are available on a per computer or mobile basis.

MMCD Infrastructure Data Standards
The MMCD Infrastructure Data Standards include the following components:
- Municipal CAD Standard – Ongoing Development
- Drawing Production Standard – August 2016
- Construction Modeling Standard – Not Complete
- Asset Data Exchange Standard – April 2016
- Asset Data Management Register – February 2012
The Municipal CAD Standard consists of the AutoCAD Civil 3D drawing template and supporting files.
The development of MMCDA Asset Management Data Repository (AMDR) schema has been a collaborative effort with input from several BC local governments. The schema incorporates infrastructure types referenced by standard MMCDA construction documents/specifications and includes Storm Drainage, Sanitary Sewers, Water Distribution and Transportation & Electrical. This project is the first step in a continuing process required to address ongoing economic, social and safety challenges associated with our deteriorating infrastructure, and growing infrastructure deficit.
