FIDIC Contracts and Agreements

FIDIC Contracts and Agreements


This two day programme is based on the FIDIC Approved Module 1 Workshop and introduces the FIDIC Suite of Contracts.

It examines the roles of both the Employer and the Engineer and highlights the essential differences between the various contract documents.

The responsibility for design is dealt with and a substantial amount of time is devoted to the issue of extensions of time, variations and certification.

Dispute resolution under the FIDIC Contracts is highlighted and the issues of notices, claims and time bars are discussed in detail.

This practical course is supplemented by true life case studies and group discussions ensure that delegates come away with a good understanding of the FIDIC philosophy.
