This two-day course deals with the law relating to construction contracts and ‘claims’ under construction contracts.

Engineers and other built environment professionals provide services, project management and works under contracts using a variety of contract forms such as FIDIC®, NEC3®, JBCC® and GCC®. This necessitates that both consultants and contractors have to have a working knowledge of all these various forms and the laws relating to them.

A major feature of modern construction contracts is their ‘deterministic’ nature. This means that they are all designed to adapt to change in the scope of works, change in completion time and change in price. Changes opportunities for more work for contractors, ‘cost growth’ and the risk of ‘cost overruns for the Employer.

The processes that provide for such changes are often called the ‘claims process’ (compensation events in NEC).
