Agenda

DAY 1

SESSION 1: PROCUREMENT OPTIONS, CHOOSING THE RIGHT FIDIC CONTRACT FOR THE JOB
In this session we discuss procurement options and provide an overview of all the contracts in the FIDIC family. We then go on to consider the general provisions in the first clause. Some matters covered in this session include:

  • Which FIDIC contract for which project procurement options;
  • An overview of all the contracts in the FIDIC family;
  • Risk allocation under the FIDIC contracts;
  • Clause 1: definitions that you need to know. How notices are served and communications made; dealing with delayed drawings or instructions

SESSION 2: ROLE PLAYERS: THE EMPLOYER, THE CONTRACTOR AND THE ENGINEER
In this session we focus on clauses 2, 3 and 4 of the FIDIC contracts. Matters covered here include:

  • The role of the Employer
  • The Employer’s financial arrangements
  • Employer’s claims
  • Who can act as the Engineer
  • The role of the Engineer
  • Impartiality of the Engineer
  • The contractor’s representative
  • Performance security

SESSION 3: SUBCONTRACTING, DESIGN LIABILITY, UNFORESEEABLE PHYSICAL CONDITIONS, PLANT & MATERIALS
This session starts to hone in on some of the areas which commonly lead to claims on construction sites. Some of the matters covered here include:

  • the FIDIC approach to subcontractors
  • the new subcontract document
  • unforeseeable physical conditions and difficulties
  • design liability under the different contracts
  • ownership of plant and materials testing

SESSION 4: TIME
Anyone who has worked on a construction or engineering project will know that most claims and disputes have timing problems at their heart. In this session we focus on some of these problems. Some matters covered in this session include:

  • When does time start running against the contractor
  • The programme
  • Early warning
  • Dealing with extension of time claims

 

DAY 2

SESSION 5: TAKING OVER AND DEFECTS
The FIDIC contracts are divided into a number of stages of completion, with rights and obligations attaching to each. In this session we focus on the stages of completion and, in particular, on taking over. Some matters discussed in this session include:

  • Taking over before certificates are issued
  • Early Taking over
  • Extension of the defects notification period
  • Failure to remedy defects
  • Tests on completion

 

SESSION 6: MEASUREMENT, VARIATIONS AND PAYMENT
Like most construction and engineering contracts FIDIC recognizes that the ability to vary the works is key to a successful project and that the financial and time related consequences of any variation must be properly managed. Some matters discussed in this session include:

  • How variations are issued
  • How variations are valued
  • Dealing with omissions
  • Dealing with changes in costs
  • Value engineering
  • Interim payment certificates
  • Delayed payment
  • Retention money
  • Final payment

SESSION 7: ACTS OF GOD, SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION
Where one party breaches the contract, or where the contract becomes impossible to perform, there are a number of routes open to the innocent party. Some matters covered in this session include:

  • Unilateral termination by the Employer
  • Cancellation by the Employer where the Contractor is in breach
  • Cancellation by the Contractor where the Employer is in breach
  • Suspension of work
  • Dealing with Acts of God

SESSION 8: MAKING CLAIMS AND DEALING WITH DISPUTES

  • Time bars
  • Employer’s claims
  • Serving notices
  • The Engineer’s obligation to respond to a claim
