Industrial construction

Disputes relating to industrial construction are different from regular disputes in the field of non-residential construction due to the special requirements imposed on electrical and mechanical engineering installations.

The design and execution of such installations is greater in scale than those elsewhere. Changes to the MTO, ISOs, P&IDs and other design details generally results in higher execution costs and technically complex disputes. The construction of such works is also usually subject to different conditions, such as combinations of DBFMO (Design, Build, Finance, Maintain and Operate) or one of the FIDIC books (Orange book, Yellow book).

Electricity power stations, household waste incineration plants, installations used in the metalworking, oil, gas and chemical industries therefore require knowledge of these conditions and all the other relationships between the construction and installation contractors and advisors involved.
