New tunnelling and underground work Fidic contract launched

The International Federation of Consulting Engineers (Fidic) and the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES) have teamed up to publish a new form of contract for tunnelling and underground works.

Based on the enquiries on international best practice in contracting of tunnelling and underground construction works conducted by the ITA-AITES during the last fifteen years and on the ITA-AITES Report 006 (“The ITA Contractual Framework Checklist for Subsurface Construction Contracts”, April 2011, ISBN 978-2-9700634-7-9), these General Conditions of Contract have been specifically drafted by a joint FIDIC – ITA Task Group for use in underground works. Their use may also be appropriate in other types of works that include a significant geotechnical uncertainty.
