Virtual FIDIC Training
Construction projects often involve large capital sums, challenging delivery times and significant change and variation. The construction contract monitors, controls and administers the project and defines the relationship between client and contractor and despite a common aim to “get finished on time and get value for money” many projects take longer than programmed and cost considerably more than the original budget.
This two-day course will outline the key contracts in FIDIC construction family, provide an overview of operation and deliver a clear, practical and systematic introduction to their use in practice.
The focus will be on the construction contracts, the Construction Contract (Red Book), the Short Form (Green Book) and the Sub-Contract and will provide a high level of commercial and contractual understanding of FIDIC contracts and the confidence to use them in practice
