GCC 2015 Introduction
This 3-session CPD Webinar covers an introduction to the SAICE General Conditions of Contract 3rd Edition 2015 (GCC 2015). The webinar consists of three separate sessions, each 3 hours long from 14:00 to 17:00 over three non-consecutive days, a total of 9 hours. Attendance of all three sessions of the webinar is compulsory.
Users who need to become familiar with the basics of any construction contract will gain that basic knowledge at this Webinar. Of all the standard forms of contract from the various suites of standard forms of construction contract permitted by legislation for state projects, the GCC 2015 is the most widely used by municipalities, water boards, state agencies and many other organs of state and the private sector.
Attendance at this Webinar on the GCC 2015 will provide a delegate not only with the fundamental knowledge of construction contracts regarding payment, time, risks, quality, termination, claims and disputes during construction, but also with insight of other contractual mechanisms such as subcontracting, completion, defects, penalties, variations, escalation and the like.
The various roles of the contracting parties are explained, including the roles of the Contractor, the Employer and the Employer’s Agent. Case law (contractual disputes that ended in court) is covered. The GCC 2015 glossy paper publication is not included in the course material. Copies of the GCC 2015 (or its Guide) can be purchased either in hard copy or as a watermarked PDF reference version. The paper publications can be purchased online from the SAICE bookstore at: https://store.saice.org.za/book-store/general-conditions-of-contract-for-construction-works-3rd-edition-2015. The electronic reference copies of the publications can be purchased online from https://saice.org.za/digital-gcc-suite-of-contracts
