About the Masterclass
The Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) is a suite of standard-form construction contracts, templates and guidance notes. The strategic aims of the CWMF are to ensure greater cost certainty at contract award stage, to get better value for money at handover stage and to ensure more efficient end-user delivery.
This masterclass will give an overview of the key documents within the CWMF. It will also cover key construction, contract and procurement law issues that may arise when using the CWMF suite. This session will be useful for anyone involved with the delivery of construction contracts in Ireland.
This masterclass will cover the following topics in detail:
- Understanding construction procurement at a strategic level – the need to think differently
- An overview of the key guidance notes and how to use them
- The key differences between the various public works contracts (inc. risk transfer)
- Assessing Contractor claims
- Update on construction adjudication in Ireland
