FIDIC Contracts in the Asia-Pacific region… what do you need to know?

FIDIC’s Contract Users’ event is coming to Asia-Pacific to help you make the most of any projects you have running in that region.

The 2015 event will take place in Singapore, here are some of the highlights…

FIDIC Rainbow Suite Workshop (Monday 29 June)
Ideal as a refresher course for experienced FIDIC users or as an introductory session for those just getting acquainted with the potential of the suite. Attend this workshop to acquire essential knowledge of the main forms of contract comprised in the “rainbow” suite of FIDIC contracts.

Main Conference Day 1 (Tuesday 30 June)
Explore current developments in FIDIC contracts by listening to a direct update from FIDIC. This day will also afford you the opportunity to learn from a range of recent Asia-specific case studies, to understand the role of the engineers under FIDIC, to discuss Claims under FIDIC and to focus on critical aspects of the White & Silver Books as well as the MDB Harmonized Contract.

Main Conference Day 2 (Wednesday 1 July)
Get a deeper understanding of time bar application under Civil Law and Common Law perspectives, understand what the key issues are for successful contract preparation & implementation, understand when a FIDIC contract is no longer a FIDIC contract and what constitutes acceptable modification, understand dispute boards as well as arbitration/ADR.

Post-Conference Workshops (Thursday 2 July)
A unique opportunity for you to delve deeper into two critical areas all FIDIC users should be fully conversant with: the morning workshop will focus on Dispute Avoidance & Resolution in Practice and the afternoon workshop is dedicated to Mastering Construction Claims & Defense
