November 16 @ 8:30 am - November 17 @ 4:30 pmR6999
This course while largely based on the FIDIC Module 1: A Practical Approach to FIDIC Contracts focuses solely on the FIDIC Plant and Design Build Contract.
When choosing the appropriate contract for a particular project, the fundamental question that must be asked is “who will be responsible for the design?”
Another question which must be asked is how much risk is the bear Employer prepared to bear, particularly the risks of unforeseen physical conditions.
If the Contractor is responsible for the design, and the employer is prepared to accept the risk of unforeseen physical conditions, and the employer retains the services of an Engineer to monitor, supervise and certify the contract, then the appropriate contract would be the FIDIC Yellow Book.
This is in accordance with FIDIC Golden Principle number 1 which emphasises the need to choose the appropriate contract. Although this contract is used for mechanical and electrical work, it is also suitable for building and engineering Works including infrastructure work such as roads, bridges and water supply/purification contracts.
The contractor accepts the additional risk of the design of the Works and does so in accordance with the Employer’s Requirements.
