We have started the layout of the agreement. PSA 2017 moves away from the multi-stakeholder approach of the 2009 edition, which required extensive navigation. All operational provisions at the front of the document are now clearly delineated in the “contractual conditions” with obligations of advice, clientele and participation. All contract data is inserted in the following calendar and contains relevant alternatives in case the customer is a contractor. Psa 2017 also contains important user guides that are included in the sales contract. The new ACE Schedules of Services are geared towards the RIBA Plan of Work 2013 phases, an issue that needed to be fixed in previous releases. In addition, calendars are designed to take into account and identify the various emerging possibilities for providing project information, including BIM. In the MEP Engineering Services version, which will be printed soon, there are now optional services that can be used where the customer applies a soft landings strategy. Finally, we believe that the introduction of basic and optional services at each stage of work will bring welcome clarifications to clients and consultants in the new schedules.
