FIDIC 2017 Claims: A Guide to Claims for Extensions of Time and Additional Payment Under the Red, Yellow and Silver Books

About this book

Inadequately expressed claims continue to be one of the most frequent reasons for time-consuming and costly disputes.

This book examines each clause of the 2017 FIDIC Red, Yellow and Silver Books that provide entitlement to make Claims for extensions of time and additional payment and explains in practical terms how the clauses should be interpreted and applied.

It also discusses the enhanced and more complex procedures introduced by FIDIC in 2017 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 and how a Claim should be compiled and presented in accordance with best professional practice.

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

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