About this workshop

IPWEA presents a two day course for people with contract management experience; either those who are currently in the role of Engineer to the Contract or those who aspire to this role.
This course has been presented annually since 2004, and feedback has been excellent.
This course is designed as a follow-on from IPWEA’s Engineer’s Representative and Contractor’s Representative workshop, although attendance at the earlier course is not a pre-requisite.

This more advanced two-day course covers the complex dual 'role' of the Engineer in the administering contracts let under NZS 3910.

Attendees are recommended to have had some previous training in construction contracts, such as the IPWEA NZ Engineer’s Representative and Contractor’s Representative course, or similar. The subtleties of the role are explored in relation to instructions, interpretation, certification, time, cost and quality decision making and for responses to claims and disputes. Exercises, case studies and a multi-choice test are used to bed in knowledge and to share experiences.

These successful workshops are not just a lecture, throughout the workshop delegates work in groups on practical examples.

You will leave this 2-day workshop with a good understanding of the topics covered, and comprehensive notes are provided for future reference. Please ensure you register early to avoid disappointment; workshops are limited to 20 delegates.
