FIDIC 1999 Claims

By Andy Hewitt

About this book

Inadequately expressed claims are one of the most frequent reasons for time-consuming and costly disputes. This 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 and explains in practical terms how the clauses should be interpreted and applied. It 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: 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 and what an Engineer’s response or determination should consist of — all in accordance with best professional practice.

From the foreword by Paul Gibbons, BSc (Hons), MSc (Const Law & Arb Kings), FRICS, FCIOB, FCInstCES, FICCP, MAE, MCIArb, APAEWE, 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.
