An Engineering Education Australia training course:
A construction project of any significance involves contracts. An understanding of how to draft, interpret and manage such legal documents can be the difference between a project’s success or failure.
This one-day workshop introduces participants to the idiosyncrasies of construction contracts and the complexities in managing the risk, changes and multiple stakeholders involved in a multi-tiered, long term project delivery.
Experienced legal professionals will demonstrate how to deal with typical issues arising under construction contracts including change; scope creep; variations; delays; site conditions; non-performance; claims and dispute management. The Australian Standards for contracts (AS2124 and AS4000) will also be explained, with reference to recent case law interpretations of provisions or clauses.
Upon completion, you will be able to confidently read and interpret common construction contracts, deal with typical issues, know when and how to apply claims and clauses, and have an understanding of how to comply with the Australian legal system.
Who should attend?
This workshop is designed for engineers and related professionals with 5 – 8 years’ experience.
Particularly useful for project managers, contract and procurement professionals, site staff, and those new to construction project teams or management.
