Building agreements - South Africa

The AAQS recommends in general the use of the FIDIC (Fédération Internationale Des Ingénieurs-Conseils) suite of documents for building and engineering works in Africa. Locally used building agreements should, however, also be considered. It should however, be noted that FIDIC is rarely used for building works in South Africa

   
FIDIC documents are (all first edition 1999):
   
  Conditions of Contract for construction
   
  Conditions of Contract for plant and design-build
   
  Conditions of Contract for EPC / turnkey projects
   
  Short form of contract
   
  The above documents are available from:
