It includes guidelines as to how to set out the claim, section by section in a logical manner to ensure that the essentials of a successful claim are included. Worked examples of claims for variations, extensions of time and additional payment are included together with sample wording showing precisely how the claim may be presented in a manner which will lead the reviewer to a logical conclusion - or at least contain a persuasive argument to support the claimant’s case.

The vast majority of claims are managed without the need to resort to case law or legal matters. Construction Claims: effective writing & responses therefore discusses what the claim is trying to achieve and how to do this in a logical and persuasive manner This is a practical, hands-on guide for the construction industry professional which explains how to approach the preparation of the claim document, what topics to cover, how to present the essential elements and how to compile the submission document into a user friendly and comprehensive document.

For those whose job it is to review such submissions, it advises how to prepare responses which set out the respondent’s counter arguments, points of view and determinations.

The guide covers:

  • The various types of claim.
  • How the claim may be split into sections dealing with the details of the contract, the cause, the effect, entitlement and quantum.
  • What this section is attempting to demonstrate or achieve and why.
  • What should be included within the section and why.

‘It is clear that there is less chance of failure to observe contract compliance using [this] book, than reliance on reading though the appropriate clauses in the contract… A big plus is that those using the book will find answers to queries relating to contractual issues arising from the FIDIC contracts conditions in a fraction of the time it would take if it were necessary to study the full text… For those using the FIDIC forms for the first time, or infrequently, this book is a must, whilst experienced users will find it a valuable memory jogger. Whichever category the reader falls into, using this book should improve performance…The book is ideal for engineers, quantity surveyors, contract managers and any person whose job it is to understand the workings of a FIDIC contract.‘                                          From the book’s Foreword by Roger Knowles

 

 

 

The most important part of any contract is the obligations of the parties, the time frames in which the parties must perform these obligations, and the consequences of failing to meet them. Failure to carry out obligations correctly is a serious risk and common source of contention or claims.

 

This practical ready-reference on the contractual obligations of the various parties for a FIDIC construction contract promotes efficient administration of construction projects, prevents contention and aids an easier understanding of their obligations. The FIDIC Contracts: obligations of the parties is presented in an easily-referenced format, with the obligations set out in tabular form and clear summaries for each type of contract given in separate sections for the Employer, the Contractor and the Engineer.

 

This guide’s ready–reference style will enable the project manager, quantity surveyor or contract manager to quickly check that his company is performing the required obligations correctly - and also to ensure the other parties are doing the same.
