In the eyes of English contractors and lawyers there is nothing too bad in assuming risk Pickavance, Delay and Disruption in Construction Contracts, 2.

They are challenged by the tasks to identify the risk retained and to recognize the fact that there is a risk Pickavance, Delay and Disruption in Construction Contracts, 2.

Remarks for in depth studies: Civil law countries usually provide for a complete set of concepts and rules as to frequently used types of transactions also referred to as default rules. Hence one will find a particular type of sales contract, a particular type of contract for services and a one for works, each having particular characteristics such as a locatio conductio operis compared with a locatio conductio operarum and each being shaped in a way which has been considered being appropriate.


Hence it can be said that under civil law the parties will make their contract in contemplation of a pre-determined contractual framework which they may shape and modify in order to meet the common intentions. The extent to which a pre-determined type of contract may be modified without switching to another pre-determined type of contract depends on the applicable law. Although contractual freedom is widely recognised being a rule so called innominate contracts, whether bespoke or standardised such as FIDIC forms of contracts , are rarely accepted as such although being generally admitted.

Instead the opinion prevails that contracts may have a mixed nature thus being amended partially by the pre-existing framework of one nominate contract and partially amended by the pre-existing framework of a another nominate contract, as it may the case for a design, build and operate contract if the operation service meets the elements of a simple service contract by which the contractor undertakes to perform services with due skill and care only best efforts approach whilst the contractor shall deliver the Works under the regime of a locatio conductio operis.

This statue provides that standard terms of contract are invalid if they put that party to the contract, which has not drafted these terms, in a position which is unreasonably disadvantageous and this is a result of bad faith of the drafter. If there is doubt, an unreasonable disadvantage is assumed if a standard contract term cannot be reconciled with essential basic principles of the statutory rule from which the contract term deviates.

Or: if it restricts essential rights or duties resulting from the nature of the contract in such a way that it endangers the purpose of the contract to an extent that this purpose will not be achieved.


Only within these statutory limits the parties of a construction contract are free to assume risks in standard business terms. Just recently the German legislator has enacted a privilege that partially makes Part B of the contracting rules for governmental contracts immune against judicial review.A feature of this type of contract is that the Contractor has to prove the reliability and performance of his plant and equipment.

Nevertheless, such changes do not do away with the need of having a standard form. If the employer is entitled to a claim for the correction of a defect, he may, even after he has accepted the works, retain a reasonable amount of the contract price, namely: We will let you know when the document is available. Unforeseen events and circumstances weather, ground conditions, shortage of material, shortage of labour, accidents, during the construction period it turns out that particular innovative design is impossible to construct etc.

Advance warning - a new advance warning provision has been introduced which is intended to promote communication and collaboration. FIDIC recognizes that privately-financed projects are usually subject to more negotiation than publicly-financed ones and that therefore changes are likely to have to be made in any standard form of contract proposed for projects within a BOT or similar type venture.

Depending on the type of work and the circumstances, this form may also be suitable for contracts of greater value, particularly for relatively simple or repetitive work or work of short duration.
