This workshop is based on the FIDIC Approved Module 0 Workshop and is directed at the Consulting Engineer and the Employer (Client) but will be of great interest to contractors making use of Consulting Engineers on Design-Build projects.

The workshop essentially covers three key sections: The White Book; The Appendices to the White Book and The Role of the Engineer.

Section One: The White Book

The appointment of the Consultant; Project Procurement Phases; Types of Services Clients Brief and the Procurement of Professional Services are covered in detail.

Once the initial appointment and procurement phases have been discussed focus will be concentrated on the Agreement; Particular Conditions; General Conditions and General Provisions. The course will look at all the documents that make up the Agreement, what to include in the Contract and precedence of each one.

Issues such as the duties undertaken at the design stage are considered and highlights what the Consultant and Client can expect of each other.

It deals with such issues as “Duty of Care” and how the role of the Consulting Engineer is dealt with when he works for contractors. Payment, liability, insurance and dispute resolution matters are covered.

Section Two: Appendices

The second session will focus on the Appendices. Each Appendix will be discussed in detail.

Section Three: The Role of the Engineer

This section will focus on the importance on the role of the Engineer. It will focus on the duties and authorities of the Engineer; the Engineer as the Employer’s Agent; the Engineer as the Supervisor and the Engineer as the Certifier. Case studies are utilised throughout the course to ensure delegates come away with a firm understanding of this critical part of the relationship between the Engineer and the Employer.
