About the course:
This Online Live Course will cover the GCC 2015 contract as well as the new GCC Subcontract and provide an overview of the new Simplified Form of the GCC, describing how the Subcontract relates to the main contract and what the Simplified Form leaves out.
The pros & cons of this SAICE suite will be weighed and considered with the participating learners to provide a critical appreciation of the forms.
SAICE®, the South African Institution of Civil Engineers, is the author of the CIDB, Construction Industries Development Board, approved GCC 2015 (General Condition of Contract for Civil Engineering Works 3rd Edition).
Why should an individual attend?
The use of GCC forms of contract, published by SAICE, are still commonplace, especially for civil work (e.g. for the construction of roads, bridges, aqueducts etc.). Whilst prepared in the original fashion (i.e. with the employer taking responsibility for the design of the works and the work being carried out on a re-measurable basis) these contracts are adaptable and the aforementioned contractual arrangement may vary. Poor contract administration and management is the number one cause for disputes. It has, therefore, become essential for users of GCC contracts to gain a thorough understanding of its terms in order that they avoid making mistakes when administering the contract. This, even more so, in the time of COVID-19 which has resulted in many projects being delayed, thus triggering a multitude of claims. This course will not only enhance your understanding of the contract, in general, it will also be of much benefit to those who are considering submitting EOT and additional cost claims or to those who stand at the receiving end of claims.
Providing learners with essential knowledge and practical tips on how to procure, administer and manage the GCC 2015 contract. Become more proficient in your role as the employer’s representative.
