Individuals involved in construction or other large projects are often unclear as to the obligations of parties regarding claims and how to correctly perform these obligations. Unfortunately, if claims are not managed effectively, there is a probability that issues will escalate into costly and time-consuming disputes. A correct understanding and the proper management of claims can significantly improve the bottom line of construction projects whilst maintaining goodwill between the parties.
This course provides an in-depth examination of the FIDIC Red, Yellow, Silver and Gold books to provide a full understanding of the circumstances under which claims may be made, what may be claimed, the claim procedures and the requirements for engineers' responses and determinations.
Participants will examine each clause within FIDIC contracts for the case of the employer's, contractor's and engineer's personnel, and gain a clear understanding of what the parties must do to comply with the requirements. They will also learn how to prepare and respond to claims and resolve matters at the project level in a timely manner, whilst maintaining good relations with the other party.
The course will be delivered in an interactive format where participants will be encouraged to ask questions and debate issues. Group assignments will be completed and presented to the rest of the group followed by open discussions.
Anyone involved with projects carried out under the FIDIC forms of contract will benefit from attending this course. This includes, but is not limited to, project managers, engineers, quantity surveyors, contract managers, contract administrators, planners, project controls and claims consultants.
