FIDIC Matrix Design-Build Contracts / Claims course Details

International Federation of Consulting Engineers logoThis is to inform the general public that FIDIC Matrix Design-Build Contracts / Claims course, Istanbul, Turkey, 6, 7, 8 October workshop registration is still on going.

This 3-day intensive training course will combine providing a thorough, up-to-date understanding of the main FIDIC design-build construction forms of contract with a practical workshop on preparing and defending claims in FIDIC contracts.

Course Topics Covered

The course begins by introducing FIDIC and the FIDIC suite of contracts, including latest developments. We put the design-build forms in context, looking at the basic differences in risk allocation between the EPC/turnkey model of the Silver Book and the more traditional Yellow Book.
We follow with a detailed consideration of the individual clauses of the two Books, comparing and contrasting them with respect to such key issues as contractor responsibility for design, fitness for purpose, errors in Employer’s Requirements, and unforeseeable physical conditions.

Other topics to be covered include practical points about drafting particular conditions and the need to co-ordinate them with the general conditions; progress and programme – importance and requirements; delays and extensions of time; delay damages – penalties and liquidated damages; performance securities; plant, materials and workmanship; tests on and after completion; taking over; defects liability; the contract price; variations, adjustments and payment; termination and suspension; allocation of specific risks; force majeure.
For the claims workshop our legal expert and course director Dr William Godwin is joined by UK/European engineer and claims specialist Ewen Maclean to lead detailed case studies and group discussion on preparing and defending claims in FIDIC contracts. This will include the DAB process, amicable settlement and making and defending claims in arbitration (including such questions as choice of forum, evidence, use of experts).
