A ready-reference on the contractual obligations of the various parties for a FIDIC construction contract.

‘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. 

  • a practical reference guide to the obligations of the parties under FIDIC contracts
  • this easily understood digest will be welcomed by anyone dealing with the FIDIC forms of contract
  • clearly referenced summaries set out in a table format
