Construction Law/Amended FIDIC Contract


Dear Sir

Could you advise me the procedure to check the appropriateness/applicability of the Sub-Clauses when drafting  the

FIDIC bespoke contracts (to prevent ambiguity and arise of the potential claims).

a. Specially what Sub-Clauses we have to scrutinize

b. Most probable wrong/ambiguous wordings

c. Wrong inclusion of data in the Appendix to Tender

Please give your advise based on your past experience in contractual,
technical and procurement aspects.


Dear Sudantha
FIDIC conditions are very well studied and balanced conditions. When you try to amend them you need to be carful so that such amendments don't backfire. It is sometimes normal for Employers to ask for removal of all Contractors right from the text but this would be a good recipe for disputes and claims.
Best thing to do is to control your requirement with in the allowed changes in the Appendix to Tender or have some body really experienced in Construction and Contract law do you bespoke Conditions. This can save you a lot of expenses and troubles at a later stage.
