Mastering Claims Under The FIDIC Contracts

An outstanding 4-day course providing practical insights and skills in the preparation, management and defence of claims

Event Overview

In all construction contracts there will be claims. Understanding how to properly prepare, defend and manage claims is essential for a successful project outcome, and will maximise the number of claims that can be settled without escalating into costly and time consuming disputes.

This 4 day workshop consists of nine modules and is designed to provide detailed practical assistance in the presentation, analysis and resolution of claims under the FIDIC Contracts. It is an essential guide to the common techniques and principles used for claims. The workshop will commence with an overview of the FIDIC suite of contracts and how this affects contract risk allocation. Module 1 will also include an introduction to Private Public Partnerships. Modules 2 to 8 focus on claims and will cover topics such as identifying claims, cause and effect, entitlement, the Parties’ contractual responsibilities and obligations, the Engineer’s obligations, notices, supporting records, extensions of time, delay and disruption, concurrency, delay analysis methods, variations, quantifying the claim and contractual procedures.

Both Contractor and Employer claims will be covered. The workshop also deals with how to properly respond to submitted claims, and discusses ways of avoiding or minimising claims at the planning and implementation stages. The last afternoon (module 9) will primarily focus on dispute resolution, and in particular, the workings and procedures of Dispute Adjudication Boards in the event a claim escalates into a dispute.

The uniqueness of this workshop is that whilst focusing on the essential principles and practice of preparing, managing and defending construction claims, it also combines this with providing detailed knowledge to fully understand and effectively use the FIDIC conditions when administering claims and disputes. Fundamental to this uniqueness is the 4 day duration which allows for an extensive and wide ranging programme, and ensures that each topic has an in-depth coverage. A further key attribute is the limited class size so as to optimise the overall learning experience of participants.

The workshop is designed to promote maximum interaction between the attendees and the tutor, and will include discussion sessions, case studies and group exercises on practical issues. Throughout the workshop there will be ample opportunities for questions.

Excellent feedback has been received for this workshop, and its popularity continues to grow. Recent workshops have been successfully held in Abu Dhabi, South Africa, Tanzania and Ghana.
