Brought fully up to date to focus on the FIDIC 2017 edition of the Red Book (Conditions of Contract for Construction), this new edition reviews the contract from the contractor's perspective, summarizing the activities and duties of the contractor's representative in order of their likely time sequence on site. The book is divided into five sections:



A summarized general review of the Red Book from the Contractor's perspective.
A review of the activities and duties of the Contractor's Representative in the same clause sequencing as they appear in the Red Book.
A summary of these activities and duties but arranged in order of their likely time sequence on site. This assists the Contractor's Representative in providing relevant documentation to the Employer and Engineer within the time limits specified in the Contract.
A selection of model letters is provided which refer to the various clauses of the contract requiring the Contractor to make submissions to the Employer or Engineer.

It is not intended to be a review of the legal aspects of FIDIC- based contracts, but is designed to be highly practical, helping the contractor's staff avoid or overcome some of the difficulties encountered on a typical international contract using the 2017 FIDIC forms.
