The GCC 2015 contract was released late in 2015 and the main objective is to set out fair, equitable, efficient, economic and transparent contract administrative procedures; and the allocation of risks. The GCC complies fully with all the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) requirements for a form of contract. GCC is for the procurement of engineering and construction works.
During the day we cover the key differences between the GCC 2010 and the GCC 2015 edition, also risk allocation between the Parties as well as the functions of the different role players. Furthermore clauses that might cause delays during the construction phase and important clauses such as programme, variations, claims, payment, termination and suspension are covered in detail. Lastly we look at various dispute resolution options available in the industry and more specifically the options included in the GCC standard conditions of contract.
The course is separated into five sessions covering the differences between the 2010 and the 2015 edition and other important information such as:
