We have a very high degree of familiarity with all major international and South African model contract forms:

FIDIC

NEC

We have represented Employers, Contractors, and Lenders, and accordingly have a detailed knowledge and appreciation of respective concerns and drivers across these model forms of agreement.

Our contract formulation is based on previously-banked templates, to ensure efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Alongside the relevant EPC contract, we attend further to the requisite ancillary agreements and securities:

 

Subcontractor Side Agreements
