Construction Law/Remeasure Contract to LS Contract


Dear Sir

If 1999 FIDIC Red Book will be used for the Lump Sum Contract, then what clauses we have to delete/amend & how the substituted/amended clauses shall be appeared.



Dear Sudantha,

Thank you for your question.

Don't get me wrong, but I always believe I seen them all, until someone else manages to astonish me again!!!

Why would you use the Red FIDIC for a Lump Sum Contract?! I'll try answering below to your question, but you may wish to clarify that to me, so I can give a better answer.

You'd need to modify first the Clause 12 Evaluation and Clause 14 Payment.

Depending on your actual reason for that choice, you may need to modify other Clauses, you may need to look at other Clauses too. As indicated, please provide your reasons, so I can improve my answer accordingly.

As for "how" to amend these Clauses, I am afraid that volume of work required for fully answering that exceeds the limits of a regular answer on this site and you'd rather need to hire me, or someone else, to do that job for you.

Why don't you simply use the Yellow FIDIC?
