How does each contract differ in its response to the same factual scenarios?
This is a joint Chartered Institute of Building Bristol Hub and Western Counties Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Event, supported by the Institution of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors and Southwest and Wales Adjudication Society.
Many problems arise on projects where the Contractor or Consultant, or both, fail to operate the contract properly.
Our expert speakers will take you through the two main forms of contract used in the UK construction industry by applying the same factual situation to each contract.
We have produced a set of commonly occurring scenarios and some coronavirus related examples to emphasise the differences, and what happens if you fail to operate the contract properly.
This should bring out the differences in each contract…some of which are quite striking!
Plus we have an electronic interactive voting on some of the issues plus a panel discussion/question and answer session.
