Contract Management and Administration - FIDIC Approved Module 4

This two day programme is based on the FIDIC Approved Module 4 workshop.

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, Islamic Bank for Development and the Asian Development Bank have adopted the 1999 FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction with modifications.

This practical training course, provided by professional engineers with extensive international experience, explains and illustrates the use of the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction (the “Construction Contract”) and the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build (the “Design-Build Contract”). The course is designed to help the participants have confidence in working with these documents whether representing Employers, Consultants or Contractors. It provides extensive checking measures and work exercises to give all delegates a comprehensive understanding of the Contracts.
