Webinar: COVID-19 GCC workshop: your questions answered

COVID-19 GCC workshop: your questions answered
2 April 2020 

COVID-19 and measures taken to contain its spread have by now impacted all businesses in the GCC and worldwide. As the crisis worsens the construction sector is likely to be amongst the hardest-hit.

This webinar works through four practical scenarios for each the employer, the main contractor, the consultant and the subcontractor / supplier, basing each on the FIDIC 1999 Red Book and 2006 White Book.

We look at how the forced quarantine of a labour camp may affect a project, what impact more stringent safety requirements has on ability to work, what are the risks to employers who wish to stop work but there is no government directive to do so, the impact on the consultant team where a contractor suspends the work and what is the position of subcontractors where overseas supply is cut off. These issues are worked through and practical answers given.
