Civil Engineering Contracts. Practice and Procedure by Charles K. Haswell

By Charles K. Haswell

Assorted agreement techniques followed on civil engineering tasks are studied during this revised variation, considering the recent advancements. the hot insurance comprises reviews at the moment version of the Civil Engineering general approach to dimension (CESMM2), the fourth variation of the FIDIC stipulations of agreement for Works of Civil Engineering development and the newest establishment of Civil Engineers' Arbitration technique. Reference has additionally been made to new varieties of agreement which were released and nearly each bankruptcy of the sooner variation has been revised and up to date

Example text

Clause 4 This requires the contractor to obtain the engineer's written consent before sub-letting any part of the works. General conditions of contract 55 Clause 5 This clause gives equal weight to all documents that form the contract.

Of course, the contractor is entitled to reimbursement of additional costs for works carried on modified drawings to the extent that the contract provides for reimbursement in respect of such modifications by means of admeasurement and, if required, by rate fixing. Sub-contracts The subject of sub-contracts is discussed in this chapter because it often forms a part of tender documents issued to prospective contractors for pricing. With the increasing amount of specialist services and products that are required for civil engineering projects the employment of sub-contractors for such services by contractors is now widespread.

Ali-in or turnkey contracts We now come to the type of contract where the employer states his requirements in broad and general terms only and invites a contractor to submit an all-in bid or turnkey bid, which is for the provision of the whole of the work including its design, construction and, if required, the commissioning operation and maintenance for a limited period of the project. The employer may also wish in such a contract to be financed until the project is earning money. This type of contract is well known and well used in the USA and elsewhere for the establishment of nuclear power stations, chemical process plant and other specialized hightechnology manufacturing process projects, the principal examples of which in the UK are the nuclear power stations undertaken by the Central Electricity Generating Board.
