For the past 20 years there has been a remarkable surge in the implementation of engineering and building contracts on design and build method of procurement. Among the contributory factors are the obvious advantages of single-point responsibility, likely guaranteed cost of construction, more certain completion time and reduced opportunities for claims by the contractors. Of course the above advantages can only be achieved if important and key principles are observed by the parties involved ie the Employer, the Contractor, the Professionals (Architects, Engineers, QS etc) and the Project Managers.

This short course is designed to achieve 2 objectives. Firstly to provide a practical guide to assist the parties in knowing what to do when performing a Turnkey/Design and Build Contract; secondly, to assist parties in knowing some potential problems and pitfalls of Turnkey/Design and Build Contract and the possible ways to minimize them in the course of the work.
