You can get a 20% saving on FIDIC’s official contract guidance for Africa!

Attend FIDIC's annual Africa Contract Users' event in Kenya to gain best practice guidance on using the range of contracts - including the implications of the latest changes and amendments that are due to come out in early 2017.

This conference is the foremost training event for those looking to avoid pitfalls, keep costs down, resolve disputes and much more…

  • Guidance delivered directly by the FIDIC Contracts Committee - don't risk making costly mistakes by being misinformed by 3rd parties
  • Specifically designed for African users and highlighting challenges that are unique to the continent

We’re delighted to have the ACEK’s Chairman, the distinguished Mr Johnson Matu Mwangi speaking at this year’s conference!

He’ll be joining the FIDIC Contracts Committee members as well as leading engineers from
across Africa to ensure that you get advice that's both accurate and analysed from multiple angles:

Standard Gauge Railway, Kenya

Built under the FIDIC EPC/Turnkey Conditions of Contract (Silver Book), the single-track standard gauge railway line between Mombasa and Nairobi will have a route length of 472km and a total length of 609km. This presentation will be delivered by Eng. Johnson Matu Mwangi, MD of APEC Consortium and Chairman of ACEK.
Sanitation & Drainage Project, Zambia

Financed by the Millennium Challenge Corporation, this ambitious sanitation and drainage project was developed under the FIDIC Red Book. MCC presenters Marc Tarkch and Chipili Chikamba will talk you through the lessons learnt and challenges faced at different stages of the project. Not to be missed.
Water Supply Project, Tanzania

Hear about the use of the FIDIC Yellow Book (FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build) in Tanzania where it helped successfully structure a water supply project. This insightful case study will be presented by Mark Etheridge of Jacobs Engineering (UK).
Neckartal Dam, Namibia

Built under FIDIC Red Book Conditions of Contract, the Neckartal will be the largest water storage dam in Namibia and indeed Southern Africa, holding 857 million cubic metres of water, which will be used to irrigate 5,000 hectares of agricultural land. This session will be delivered FIDIC accredited trainer Mr Kevin Spence.
