Module1“The Practical Use of the 1999 FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction & Design-Build”

Module 2 “The Management of Claims & Resolution of Disputes under 1999 FIDIC Contracts”

Module 5 “The FIDIC Conditions of Contract for EPC/Turnkey Projects”



The 1999 FIDIC Conditions of Contract are being increasingly used by the international Construction Industry throughout the World. The  Multi-Lateral Development Banks, including the World Bank, Inter -American Development Bank & Caribbean Development Bank have adopted the 1999 FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction with modifications known as Harmonised Construction Contract.


Module 1 gives the delegates a sound understanding on the practical use of the FIDIC Construction (Red Book) & Design-Build (Yellow Book) Contracts. The procedures and application of the Contract clauses are explored and made realistic through extensive work exercises. Delegates will be much more confident in using these complex Contracts after completing the course.


Module 2 is designed to provide practical assistance to those working with the FIDIC 1999 Contract Conditions in the management of claims whether time and/or cost related. The objective is to avoid claims becoming disputes but should this occur the FIDIC Dispute Adjudication process is fully explained. As with Module 1 work exercises bring the Contract clauses to “life” with the participation of all delegates in their solution.


Both courses are applicable to all the Parties involved within a 1999 FIDIC Contract including representatives of the Employer, the Contractor, the Engineer, and associated professionals. By having a professional understanding of the responsibilities and rights of the Parties under 1999 FIDIC Contracts, the prospects for successful projects are greatly increased and the resolution of claims will be achieved more successfully.


EPC Module 5:  The course begins by introducing FIDIC and the FIDIC contract forms, including latest developments. We place the Silver Book in context by examining the EPC/turnkey model of procurement and the position of the Silver Book within the 1999 suite of contracts. We follow with a clause by clause consideration of the Silver Book general conditions, focusing on such key issues as contractor responsibility for design, fitness for purpose, errors in Employer’s Requirements and unforeseeable physical conditions. We see how the Silver Book treatment of these and other topics compares and contrasts with the other design build forms and the Yellow Book in particular.
