Event Name: Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Turnkey: Project Risk, Contract and Insurance

Date: 2 – 3 December 2013

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

Website: http://epcturnkey.invidaevents.com

Details:

As the financing of construction projects becomes increasingly difficult, so the EPC model is increasingly being turned to as a mechanism for completing construction works on time and within budget. This is particularly so in large scale infrastructure projects such as telecommunications, power, gas, water and transport contracts.

While EPC contracts are becoming the norm for delivering these large scale infrastructure projects, they are not without risk for both employer and contractor. Contractors in particular may be unwilling to assume the increased risk which EPC contracts place on them. Or, if they do assume this risk they may well price the risk into their contract, leading to increased costs for all.

A complicating factor in any discussion of EPC contracts is that there are various names given to these contracts, sometimes inaccurately. Terms like EPC, Turnkey, EPCM, Design-Build, Management Contract and other terms are often used differently in different jurisdictions, by different writers and in different contracts.

For these and other reasons it is vital that all parties understand the exact nature of the risk they are assuming when they embark on an EPC contract.

Claims are an inherent part of the construction industry. They are provided for in standard construction contracts and recognized as a mechanism for dealing with unforeseeable events and for allocating risk between the parties. Yet, despite their prevalence, few players in the construction industry understand when claims can be brought, how they should be brought, and how claims should be responded to. In this two day workshop key aspects of construction claims are discussed, through case studies and practical examples.

This workshop is designed around case studies and practical examples. Delegates are encouraged to discuss matters, raise questions with the presenter and work out practical solutions to practical problems. Through a combination of lectures, discussion and hands on problem solving, this workshop will provide a thorough, comprehensive understanding of construction claims at work.

Comprehensive course notes which include all slides, case studies and background notes will be provided to delegates.
