Design and Construct Contracts under NZS 3916 - ONLINE

When:  Apr 6, 2022 from 08:30 to 13:00 (NZST)
Associated with  New Zealand

A workshop for those experienced in construction contracts and familiar with NZS 3910 who need to know just what's different about design and construction contracts, and how their roles will be affected by these differences.

Make sure you are better prepared for your design and construct contracts, whether as an Engineer to Contract, Engineer’s Representative, Principal or Contractor by attending this interesting workshop.

Although the NZS 3916:2013 document looks and feels very similar to its parent document NZS 3910 there are key differences throughout to reflect the Contractor’s duties and obligations as designer.

The course outlines the consequent changes from NZS 3910 throughout, including to the role of the Engineer, processes such as design, variations, insurances, etc. It also covers the risks and benefits to the Principal and Contractor of using NZS 3916, as well as the importance of the Principal’s Requirements and ensuring appropriate procurement.

This is explained in detail in a half-day on-line workshop and provide attendees with a comprehensive guide for personal reference together, with case studies on what works well and what doesn’t.

The workshop content is limited to a half-day assuming that attendees have been exposed to prior NZS 3910 training and are familiar with NZS 3910.

NZS 3916: 2013 is available separately in hard copy or electronic format from
