FIDIC 1999 Claims

A Guide to Claims for Extensions of Time and Additional Payment Under the Red, Yellow and Silver Books

A new book by Andy Hewitt, FICCP, FCIOB, FCICES, FQSi

Inadequately expressed claims are one of the most frequent reasons for time-consuming and costly disputes. Andy Hewitt’s latest book examines each clause of the FIDIC Red, Yellow and Silver Books that provide entitlement to make a claim for an extension of time and additional payment.

Throughout, Andy explains in practical terms how the clauses should be interpreted and applied. He also discusses the FIDIC procedures for the giving of notices, the submission of detailed particulars of the claim and the Engineer’s responses and determinations.

More importantly, the book also informs the reader about what FIDIC does not say. Andy addresses common problems he sees time and time again including:

  • What should be included in the particulars of a claim?
  • How an extension of time should be demonstrated.
  • What costs should be included in a claim for additional payment?
  • How a claim should be compiled.
  • What an Engineer’s response or determination should consist of?

He shares his experience and advice, and provides detailed examples, all in accordance with best professional practice.

From the foreword by Paul Gibbons, President of the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners.

“This is a must-have book for anyone dealing with FIDIC contracts and should be used by Employers, Contractors, Lawyers, Consultants and all those involved with effective contract administration and dispute resolution and avoidance. I highly recommend it.”
