On Tuesday, December 6, the Toronto Chapter of CSC will co-host a dinner meeting with the Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (CIQS), examining completeness of contract documents and issue management.
Held at the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club, the gathering features speaker Arif Ghaffur, PQS, FRICS, MCIArb—the editor of CIQS’ Construction Economist publication. His presentation will explore what makes ‘complete’ contract documents, the typical issues that arise, and how these are dealt with within the realms of engineering and construction contracts.
Key components that form the overall contract document will be reviewed by Ghaffur, along with how these interact with each other in the context of the agreement between the parties to deliver goods or services. Contractual documents that increasingly include multiple stakeholders are coming under increasing scrutiny in an environment when project participants seek to deliver projects to schedule and cost. Lessons learned are stressing the need for contract documents to be complete, and issues on engineering/construction projects are managed by adopting a structured and systematic approach.
The event kicks off with cocktails at 5:15 p.m., followed by dinner and the presentation. Cost (including HST) is $50 for members, $55 for non-members, and $60 cash at the door. For more information, click here.
