A Practical Approach to FIDIC Contracts

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

This blended learning workshop, facilitated by FIDIC Accredited Trainer Kevin Spence, is based on the approved FIDIC Module 1 Workshop and introduces the FIDIC Suite of Contracts.

In accordance with the FIDIC Golden Principles, choosing the appropriate form of contract is highlighted with particular emphasis on apportionment of risk and responsibility for the design.

The essential differences between the various contract documents comprising the Rainbow Suite is examined in great detail.
The role of both the Employer and the Engineer and their interaction with the Contractor forms an integral part of this course.

The responsibility for design is dealt with, particularly under the Plant and Design Build contract and a substantial amount of time is devoted to the issue of extensions of time, variations, and payment matters including interim and final payment certificates.

Dispute resolution under the FIDIC Contracts is highlighted and the issues of notices, claims and time bars are discussed in detail. This course is supplemented by true life case studies and assignments to ensure delegates come away with a good understanding of the FIDIC philosophy.
