Engineer's Representative and Contractor's Representative

Starts:  Oct 20, 2021 09:00 (NZST)
Ends:  Oct 21, 2021 17:00 (NZST)
Associated with  New Zealand

This is a 2-day face-to-face workshop

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the administration of NZS 3910 contracts, as well as potential errors and misunderstandings to avoid. Comprehensive notes are provided for future reference. More than a lecture, at regular intervals this course involves working in groups on solutions to practical problems  in contract administration.

Both Engineer’s Representative training and Contractor’s Representative training are delivered in this course, because a mutual understanding of the two roles is important for each side, and many participants may find themselves alternating between these two roles during their career.

Course Content

Content of this course was updated in 2018 and covers the 2013 revisions of NZS 3910 conditions of contract, and publication of the new NZS 3916 for design and construct contracts.
For organisations working on contracts let under NZS3910:2003, the workshop also covers how the old and new versions of the standard differ.

This course has been well received by hundreds of participants from local authority, consultant, contractor and subcontracting organisations and is one of IPWEA NZ’s most popular workshop.

Who should attend

Those in the role of either Engineer's Representative or Contractor’s Representative under NZS3910 construction contracts, and those who aspire to these roles.
