Construction litigation and why it is important

A construction litigator is a specialised attorney who is trained and experienced in disputes pertaining to contractual disputes between stakeholders in governmental, commercial or residential construction projects. The stakeholders can range from representing funders, employers, principal agents, contractors and subcontractors in the dispute.

The general forms of constructions contracts in South Africa are the following:

  1. The Joint Building Contracts Committee contracts;
  2. The General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works;
  3. The New Engineering Contract 3 and 4; and
  4. Fédération Internationale Des Ingénieurs-Conseils known as FIDIC contracts.

It is important to remember that the above forms of contracts differ depending on the date of release.
