Course Overview

A contract is a legally binding document which administers the rights and obligations of the parties to the agreement. The parties in a construction contract shall fulfill their obligations as specified in the contract and should a contract breach occur, there are different remedies that are available to the injured party.

The claim can be defined as ‘the assertion of a right by a party to an extension of the contract period and/or to payment arising under the express or implied terms of the contract’.  Under the construction contract, various types of claims  may be made by a party against another party.

A party who treat the claim process proactively from the beginning are better equipped to avoid the pain of a denied claim and the expense of a subsequent appeal. The claim preparation shall be carried out under four steps such as research, analysis, evaluation and effective writing.

The important aspects of a claim are that either party shall make a claim against the  other and defending such a claim is very important to avoid the damages that arise due to the same.

This course will provide a holistic education/training to the delegates for the best practice in the preparation and presentation of construction contract claims, defending claims for opposing parties.
