By contrast, Sub-Clause 2. Now, both the employer and contractor are subject to the day limitation period for notification of claims under Clause As well, the Second Edition now requires a formal Notice be provided in respect of any claims. As a result, parties will no longer be entitled to rely on informal notices, such as discussion points in meeting minutes or emails.

The Second Edition provides for an 84 day limitation period for submission of a detailed claim by either the employer or the contractor. This deadline only applies to claims for payment or for reduction in the contract price and claims for extension of time, and replaces the 42 day limitation period for contractor claims in Sub-Clause The detailed claim must include: a detailed description of the event or circumstance giving rise to the claim; a statement of the contractual or legal basis for the claim; all contemporary records on which the claiming party relies; and detailed supporting particulars of the amount of additional payment or reduction in the contract price if the employer is the claiming party , extension of time or extension of the defects notification period being claimed.

If a detailed claim is not submitted within 84 days of the date when the claiming party first became aware of the event giving rise to the claim, then the claim will lapse.

Maintaining adequate records is therefore critical to establishing entitlement to money and time. Sub-Clause Clearly the Contractor will rightly increase his tender price to account for such extra risks. The Tenderer should then be permitted and required to verify all relevant information and data and make any necessary investigations.

He shall also carry out any necessary design and detailing of the specific equipment and plant he is offering, allowing him to offer solutions best suited to his equipment and experience. Therefore the tendering procedure has to permit discussions between the Tenderer and the Employer about technical matters and commercial conditions. All such matters, when agreed, shall then form part of the signed Contract. Thereafter the Contractor should be given freedom to carry out the work in his chosen manner, provided the end result meets the performance criteria specified by the Employer.

Consequently, the Employer should only exercise limited control over and should in general not interfere with the Contractor's work. Clearly the Employer will wish to know and follow progress of the work and be assured that the time programme is being followed. A feature of this type of contract is that the Contractor has to prove the reliability and performance of his plant and equipment.

FIDIC recognizes that privately-financed projects are usually subject to more negotiation than publicly-financed ones and that therefore changes are likely to have to be made in any standard form of contract proposed for projects within a BOT or similar type venture.

Among other things, such form may need to be adapted to take account of the special, if not unique, characteristics of each project, as well as the requirements of lenders and others providing financing. Nevertheless, such changes do not do away with the need of having a standard form.

FIDIC wishes to record its appreciation of the time and effort devoted by all the above. Under the usual arrangements for this type of contract, the Contractor constructs the works in accordance with a design provided by the Employer. Conditions of Contract for EPC Turnkey Projects, which are recommended where one entity takes total responsibility for the design and execution of an engineering project.

Under the usual arrangements for this type of contract, the entity carries out all the Engineering, Procurement and Construction: providing a fully-equipped facility, ready for operation at the "turn of the key".

This type of contract is usually negotiated between the parties.

This was defined in a way that it included adherence to the Technical Requirements and thus J These obligations were also stated to be minimum requirements. At first instance the High Court found that the contractor was liable for the defects, as the contract required that the foundations would be designed to have a lifetime of twenty years, which they did not.

The Court of Appeal overturned the decision and found that there was an inconsistency in the contract between the fitness for purpose obligation and the design lifetime of 20 years and clause J Looking at the contract as a whole, Lord Neuberger decided that a clause imposing an obligation to build the foundations with a 20 year design life was not too slender a thread to impose liability and held the contractor liable for the repair costs.

Principles of Contract Interpretation Where there is an ambiguity or inconsistency in the contract then normal principles of contract interpretation will apply. This did not require that a literalist exercise be undertaken which focussed solely on the wording of the particular clause but that the court must consider the contract as a whole and, depending on the nature, formality and quality of drafting of the contract, give more or less weight to elements of the wider context in reaching its views to that objective meaning.

Where a contractor takes on works it gives a warranty that it is capable of building the works as designed.As a result, parties will no longer be entitled to rely on informal notices, such as discussion points in meeting minutes or emails.

This is a departure from Sub-Clause 3.

For such projects it is necessary for the Contractor to assume responsibility for a wider range of risks than under the traditional Red and Yellow Books.

The Tenderer should then be permitted and required to verify all relevant information and data and make any necessary investigations. Previous sub-clauses 2.

Previously, an employer was only required to give notice and particulars of a claim to the contractor "as soon as practicable" once he became aware of an event or circumstance which gave rise to a claim. Thus the Employer does not have to attempt to alter a standard form intended for another risk arrangement, and the Contractor is fully aware of the increased risks he must bear.

Robinson, Independent Consulting Engineer has 50 years of experience with contract management and contractual issues for major civil engineering projects worldwide. In summary, clause 13 required that the contractor construct the works in strict accordance with the contract except where legally or physically impossible.

This need of many employers has not gone unnoticed, and FIDIC has considered it better for all parties for this need to be openly recognised and regularised.
