The Course will include a combination of lectures, case studies and Q&A.
Both tutors will participate in giving the lectures, presenting the case studies and addressing the Q&A.

After each case study is briefed, the trainees will be allowed to give their opinion on the case before the tutors give the proper resolution.
The handouts of the presentation will be distributed to the trainees beforehand to allow better follow up.
Construction delays are the source of frequent conflicts, claims, and disputes. It is common in construction contracts for contractors to be assessed agreed damages for late completion. Such agreed damages are referred to as liquidated damages under contracts in general and as delay damages under construction contracts in specific. Sometimes, delay damages clauses are not a reasonable estimate of damages and sometimes the actual damages differ from the delay damages; these cases are handled in two different ways under the common law system and civil law system. In this course, an understanding of the delay damages under both the common law and civil law systems is provided, in order to properly manage the application of the delay damages in construction contracts. The application of the delay damages needs to be properly managed in accordance with the provisions of the subject contract and the applicable law, otherwise conflicts, claims and/or disputes will inevitably exist over the application of delay damages.
This course is recommended for participating; engineers, lawyers and accountants involved in construction contracts, employers, consultants, contractors, developers, project managers, construction managers, quantity surveyors, arbitrators, contracts officers and project controls.
