Dublin Course Generates Valuable Discussion Amongst Delegates

I have just returned from a thouroughly enjoyable trip to Dublin where we held one of Claims Class’ 2-Day Intensive Training courses on construction claims.The course went well, with some lively discussions and debate amongst delegates from several disciplines within the industry. I was also flattered to find that some delegates had travelled from England and Belgium to attend the course.

Discussions often returned to the relatively new GCC form of contract recently introduced for use on government projects in Ireland. It seems as though the industry is having to go through a steep learning curve to adapt to this form of contract which places a high level of risk upon the contractor. More than one delegate mentioned that claims management and administration will need to be improved if contractors are not to inadvertently neglect to submit the required notices, or to claim their just entitlements.

All in all, this course was a great success and a very pleasant experience, so we hope to return to Ireland next year.
