Many large construction projects, such as those in the Middle East or Asia Pacific, are international in scope with a range of contractors and subcontractors often working to different legal systems and understandings, leading to confusion in the understanding, interpretation, and execution of a given contract. With commentary on the two most widely used FIDIC design-build forms, the Yellow and Silver Books, this book provides concise and practical guidance to those involved in the negotiation and management of international construction and engineering contracts.
