Construction Law/FIDIC_Cascade Sub-Contracting


Dear Mr. Arshad,

I would like to ask you whether FIDIC Conditions of Contract allow the cascade Sub-contracting.

Thank you.
Kind regards,

Enrico Odorisio

Dear Odorisio,

As per my understanding, FIDIC Conditions does not allow sub-Contracting the whole of the Works to Subcontractors.However,he may subcontract without the consent of the Employer a specific  part of the work for which the Subcontractor is named in the Contract .Nevertheless,he will obtain prior consent of the Engineer for his other proposed Subcontractors to execute certain part of the work.
