2014 edition of E-570

The Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee has released the 2014 edition of E-570, the Agreement Between Engineer and Consultant for Professional Services.

The update was completed with an eye to last year’s revision of EJCDC’s construction documents, the C-series. The document sets the terms for delegating to a consultant a portion of services as specified in a prime engineering agreement, like E-500, the Agreement Between Owner and Engineer for Professional Services. The scope allows for both engineering as well as related services, including landscape architecture.
