The NEC and FIDIC are among the most popular standard forms of engineering and construction contracts used on projects both in the UK and internationally. However, they have fundamentally different approaches to the way projects should be managed and conducted. This course will offer a focus on contracting using the NEC and FIDID standard forms.
By attending this course, delegates will gain an insight on how to work with these forms of contract, and how to deal with claims arising under the forms.
Attendees will be updated on how the dispute resolution mechanisms now work with respect to the passing of the Construction Contracts Act. Other topics include the use of FIDIC DABs, the need to know elements of both bringing and dealing with money and time claims, the most recent decisions including the latest TCC and ICC, and lessons learned to utilise in your own projects. This course will also look at the potential impacts that Brexit will have on these contracts and what measures can be taken to mitigate risk.
All attendees will get a chance to engage in an informative Q & A session, and will receive a highly informative course pack, and leave with 5 structured CPD Points.
