Minor and Short Forms of Public Works Contracts Designed by the Employer: Explained is the third book in the “Explained” series. This book is based on and explains the following new public works contracts: “Public Works Contract for Minor Civil Engineering and Building Works Designed by the Employer” and the “Short Form of Public Works Contract for Building and Civil Engineering Works” and, where applicable, the Model Forms issued by the Department of Finance.
A large proportion of public sector construction projects will be procured under the Public Works Contract for Minor Civil Engineering and Building Works Designed by the Employer for contracts less than €5 million and the Short Form of Public Works Contract for Building and Civil Engineering Works for contracts less than €500,000.00.
It is critical that those already involved in public works construction contracts, whether they are designers, engineers, quantity surveyors, consultants, contractors or those setting out on a career in construction, that they have an understanding of how these forms of contracts will impact on the ways in which public works construction projects are executed.
This book explains each contract clause in a clear and easy to understand manner to allow the reader to develop an insight into how these contracts will operate. This book will add to the readers’ understanding of the strict and critical administrative procedures demanded by these contracts.
