Construction Claims


Understand why claims arise, the different types of claims and of the events that entitles either of the contracting parties to submit a claim. Gain practical know-how and knowledge (with reference to NEC, FIDIC, JBCC and GCC forms of contract) of the procedures applicable to the notification, quantification and submission of claims. Understand which documents could be used in order to substantiate claims and the importance of the program when submitting an extension of time claim. Complex issues such as concurrent delays, disruption and acceleration claims will also be covered during this course.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

Claims are very commonplace in the industry. Many claims fail due to the fact that the parties are unsure of when and how to claim. This course will thus take an in-depth look at the cause for claims and the procedures to follow in order to notify, to quantity and to submit them so as to enhance the probability of success when bringing a claim. The responsibility of the employer's agent to respond properly and effectively to claims, and how this should be done, is also examined and covered thus eliminating possible disputes from arising in connection with claims.
