Namibia – FIDIC Contracts – A Practical Approach


Includes post workshop FIDIC Accredited Assessments and case studies for the year as well as access to Accredited FIDIC Trainer and dispute resolution expert.



Category: Tags: ,

This two day programme is based on the FIDIC Approved Module 1 Workshop and introduces the FIDIC Suite of Contracts. It examines the roles of both the Employer and the Engineer and highlights the essential differences between the various contract documents. The responsibility for design is dealt with and a substantial amount of time is devoted to the issue of extensions of time, variations and certification. Dispute resolution under the FIDIC Contracts is highlighted and the issues of notices, claims and time bars are discussed in detail. This practical course is supplemented by true life case studies and group discussions ensure that delegates come away with a good understanding of the FIDIC philosophy.

The 1999 FIDIC Conditions of Contract are being increasingly used by the international Construction Industry throughout the World. The Multi-Lateral Development Banks, including the World Bank, Inter -American Development Bank & Caribbean Development Bank have adopted the 1999 FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction with modifications known as Harmonised Construction Contract.

Module 1 gives the delegates a sound understanding on the practical use of the FIDIC Construction (Red Book) & Design-Build (Yellow Book) Contracts. The procedures and application of the Contract clauses are explored and made realistic through extensive work exercises. Delegates will be much more confident in using these complex Contracts after completing the course.
