Understanding Claims Under The FIDIC Contracts

Understanding Claims Under The FIDIC Contracts

Failure to identify and manage claims correctly costs valuable time and money


If you’ve been working in the construction industry for a while, then you’ll know exactly what we mean. With claims on the rise today, it is vital that companies have a person who possesses the knowledge and skill to handle claims effectively. The cost of getting it wrong can have drastic consequences for a project’s timeline and profitability.

The FIDIC suite of contracts is one of the most renowned forms of contract used worldwide. Having worked on projects using these contracts for years, we know that they are not always easy to navigate. Perhaps you’ve been on the employer or contractor side and have struggled to understand how to manage claims under the FIDIC contracts; unsure of the circumstances that provide a basis for a claim, not sure what you can claim for and what the proper procedures and requirements are for the Engineer’s responses and determinations.

Our Understanding Claims Under the FIDIC Contracts training courses have been created to give you a thorough understanding of claims under the FIDIC contracts. We’ll go through every clause in detail to ensure you know exactly under what circumstances a claim may arise and what obligations must be complied with when making a claim. Whilst each of our courses offers different learning outcomes, regardless of the course you take, by the end you’ll be able to confidently identify, prepare and respond to all manner of claims under the FIDIC contracts and resolve matters with speed and efficiency. You will also benefit from learning how to handle claims on any FIDIC-based projects from the contractor, employer and engineer’s perspective.

Practical Use of the FIDIC Contracts

Practical Use of the FIDIC Contracts

Navigating FIDIC forms of contracts is a highly sought after skill today


If you’ve worked with the 1999 suite of FIDIC forms of contract before then you’ll know that administering these can be challenging. It takes a high level of expertise to know which contract to use and exactly how to apply it. You need to fully understand all a contract’s obligations, rights, remedies and procedures.

We know that’s a big responsibility. If you’re on the employer or consultant side in charge of choosing and preparing the right contract, then getting it wrong can impact project delivery and standards. From the contractor’s perspective, failing to understand rights and responsibilities can have a huge impact on profit. Either way, the results can be disastrous.

Rest assured, we’ve been through these very challenges and understand that the proper management and application of the FIDIC contracts can be a headache. That’s why we devised our Practical Use of the FIDIC Contracts courses to help you gain the real life skills you need to handle FIDIC with ease.
