by Jeremy Glover and Simon Hughes with an introduction by Christopher Thomas QC
Understanding the FIDIC Red Book, the 2nd edition of which was published in January 2012, provides a clause-by-clause commentary of the FIDIC Red Book contract offering expert guidance on interpretation. Each clause is reproduced in full followed by a bullet point summary of key features plus additional commentary on the clause’s operation, including points of interest and consideration of recent case law.
The book also helps you solve problems frequently encountered in practice in relation to various clauses and compares the new contract with previous versions of the FIDIC Red Book and other widely used standard contracts. This includes an in-depth review of the Multilateral Development Bank Harmonised edition (or Pink Book) 2010 together with an explanation of how the Pink Book differs from the standard FIDIC Red Book contract.
The commentary also discusses the changes in approach introduced by FIDIC in its 2008 Gold Book for Design, Build and Operate Contracts as well as looking at some of the provisions introduced by FIDIC in its 2011 Conditions of Subcontract.
The publication has been jointly written by Jeremy Glover and Simon Hughes QC of Keating chambers. Christopher Thomas QC, also of Keating Chambers, wrote the introduction and a foreword has been provided by Mr. Justice Ramsey.
