Seminar on: The Art of “Claimsmanship” in the Construction Industry

On 16 December 2019, the CIArb Egypt Branch organized jointly with CRCICA a seminar titled “The Art of Claimsmanship in the Construction Industry”. The speakers were Eng. Ayman El-Ghazzawi, Managing Director of Value Metric Consultants (VMC), a company regulated by RICS, Eng. Hossam Kandeel, NBK Project Manager and Project Management Consultant, and Eng. Dr. Waleed El Nemr, Vice Chairman of the CIArb Egypt Branch and Contracts Director of Hill International Africa. The seminar was moderated by Eng. Dr. Salwa Fawzi, Commercial Director at Elsewedy Industrial Development. The seminar started with a moment of remembrance of two of the Branch Committee members, who passed away in October 2019, namely Mrs. Wissam El Molla, Former Branch Honorary Secretary, and Eng. Tamer Nabieh, Former Branch Treasurer. The seminar then delved into claims tactics used by contractors and employers in the construction industry from the contracts, by Dr. Waleed, cost, by Eng. Ayman, and scheduling, by Eng. Hossam perspectives. Although the tactics were based on the 1992 article by US Claims Consultant, James Zack, the presenters reflected on these tactics – and added new ones – while drawing from their own experiences.

The event was attended by 99 participants from Egypt, Jordan and Libya representing construction and private sector companies, and members of law firms. Particularly significant, this event was remotely attended, through live webinar, by 12 engineering professionals and members of arbitration and ADR institutions in Jordan. The nearly 2-hour seminar was followed by a one-hour session of stimulating questions and answers.
