About the Webinar:

The FIDIC Contracts Committee has recently announced the planned release of a suite of new contracts and related publications in early 2021. These planned publications include:

  • A test edition of the new Bronze Book form of contract for use on brownfield sites;
  • A revised edition of the Green Book
  • A FIDIC Building Information Modelling (BIM) protocol; and
  • New FIDIC guides for the 2017 Rainbow Suite editions of FIDIC's Red Book, Yellow Book and Silver Book contracts

Please join our distinguished speakers Ms Joanna Seetoh and Ms Yvonne Foo who will discuss the latest developments and updates in relation to FIDIC contracts, as well as gaze into the crystal ball and discuss the expectations for these upcoming publications. This is a must attend webinar for lawyers, consultants, developers, contractors and designers, and particularly those involved in the establishment of new projects that are considering the adoption of FIDIC forms of contracts

Webinar & Virtual Networking Programme:

Webinar participants will be able to watch and listen to (via computer audio, recommended for security reasons, or telephone line) the video presentation and Q&A discussion on their screens, as well as participate in the Q&A discussion by sending in their questions to the moderator via text using the built-in Q&A function.

Immediately following the webinar, SCL(S) will host a virtual networking session. The session will be held via Zoom in groups of about 10 persons for about 20 - 30 minutes. Each group will be hosted by a member of Council. Each person in the group will be given the opportunity to introduce themselves and say who they are looking to make business connections with.
