FIDIC Rainbow

FIDIC Rainbow

It is known that the old set of FIDIC books were divided into ‘’Red’’ and ’’Yellow’’  forms on the basis of the type of the Project to be constructed. However the new forms are divided on the basis of who designs the Project and the answer to the question which form is suitable for a particular Project depends on who bears the design responsibility!

I provide FIDIC contracts training for small and large groups of practitioners such as project Directors, Project Managers, contract administrators, Resident Engineers, Construction Supervisors, Accountants and Auditors.

I can arrange in-house seminars which can follow either of my standard seminar programmes or which can be tailored to your company’s needs. The seminars generally take place over 2 days. Timing and content can be flexible to suit your individual needs.

Please find here the sample slides for three days FIDIC Standards in Construction Contract Drafting training we have performed jointly with White & Case London Office for the delegates of IRAQ PROVINCIAL INVESTMENT COMMISSIONS in Istanbul.

Moreover, distinctive from most of other trainers and lecturers,  in my trainings I try to address the practical and procedural issues regarding arbitration and dispute resolution (DAB) experienced by Civil Law Practitioners using FIDIC forms of Contract and Common Law practitioners who work under Civil Law conditions.

I have been involved in several international arbitration cases where the disputes were arising from different forms of FIDIC contracts, 1987 Red Book, 1987 Yellow Book, 1995 Orange Book, 1999 Red, Yellow and Silver Books.
