SYNOPSIS

Dispute in business is inevitable, and the construction industry is no different. Disputes arise within the construction industry for all sorts of reasons, with several possible ways by which to resolve them. However, although these disputes are often resolvable, they inevitably bring many challenges and legal issues that have to take into consideration.

In order to avoid the disputes, we have to understand what are the traps and pitfalls in construction contracts. Even if we may not be able to avoid the disputes completely we may be able to reduce some of them. This course will explore the common problems that exist in construction projects and to seek for possible solutions to overcome them before the disputes escalate.

The traps and pitfall that we seek to explore include:

1. What are the duties and liabilities of Engineers/Architects and Quantity Surveyors in
    administering construction contracts?
2. Are Engineers/Architects liable to the Contractors for under or no certification?
3. Does Contractor entitled to extension of time for delays caused by the Employer?
4. Under what situations are Contractors entitled to claim for loss & expense for the delay?
5. What if the late completion is due to concurrent delay by both the Contractor and employer?
6. When a project is practically completed?
7. Can the Contractor claim for the variation order which is only issued verbally?
8. Can the Employer terminate a contract when then contractor is progressing slowly and behind
    the schedule of the program of work?
9. Is retention sum trust money?

This seminar will provide a detailed analysis to the above problems and their related issues.
