Construction Claims Master Class

Where: Accra, Ghana

When: 3-5 October 2016


Construction Claims Master Class is an outstanding 3 day course providing practical insights and essential skills on the principles and techniques required for time and money claims under construction contracts

In all construction contracts there will be claims. Understanding how to properly prepare, defend and manage claims is essential for a successful project outcome, and will maximise the number of claims that can be settled without escalating into costly and time consuming disputes. This 3 day course consists of eight modules and is designed to provide detailed practical assistance in the presentation, analysis, management and resolution of claims under construction contracts.


It is an essential guide to the common techniques and principles used for claims. The course will commence with an overview of the widely used FIDIC suite of contracts, and then discuss risks in construction projects and how they are allocated under construction contracts.

Module 1 will also include an introduction to Private Public Partnerships.

Modules 2 to 8 focus on claims and will cover topics such as identifying claims, cause and effect, entitlement, the Parties’ contractual responsibilities and obligations, the Engineer’s obligations, notices, supporting records, extensions of time, delay and disruption, concurrency, delay analysis methods, variations, quantifying the claim and contractual procedures.

Both Contractor and Employer claims will be covered. The course also deals with how to properly respond to submitted claims, common defences to claims and discusses ways of avoiding or minimising claims at the planning and implementation stages.

Excellent feedback has been received for this course, and its popularity continues to grow. Recent courses have been successfully held in Abu Dhabi, South Africa, Tanzania and Ghana.
