oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - Settlement of disputes in civil engineering contracts : technical note
In the execution of contracts for civil engineering works, disputes arise from time to time. This is not surprising if the nature of the works and the circumstances under which they have to be carried out are borne in mind. Most civil engineering contracts therefore make provision for the settlement of disputes.
These provisions will be discussed in this article with specific reference to the provisions of the General conditions of contract 1982 for use in connection with works of civil engineering construction (fifth edition), which are recommended for general use by the SA Institution of Civil Engineers, the South African Association of Consulting Engineers and the SA Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors.
