15 Half–Day Webinar 2020 Sessions On Practical Construction Contract Administration/Management

With the Movement Control Order (“MCO”) and its extensions by our Government recently to tackle the Coronavirus or Covid-19 pandemic, life must go on under such difficult and uncertain times. Players and personnel in the construction industry must continue to developed/improved and adapt through acquiring commercial and contractual knowledge and skills, including experiential learning. Under such unfortunate circumstances, PAM & RISM through their Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Committee in collaboration with BK Entrusty have decided to reorganise this series of training seminar via webinar due to the movement control restriction.

This series is a continuation of the 15 sessions, launched in February 2020, of which only the first 2 sessions were conducted face-to-face at PAM Centre, before MCO commenced. Consequently, the first 2 sessions are repeated at the end of the remaining 13 sessions. There are fifteen (15) comprehensive training sessions in this programme, covering a comprehensive contract administration/management topics, including related case law updates with Q&A discussion relating to each topic / session duration about 2 ½  – 3 hours session.

This specifically targeted training programme combines construction contract and technical knowledge with practical experience and skills with work-related discussions, including the Trainer sharing his experience through past economic downturns/recessions. This impending economic downturn/recession is likely to be the most severe, both locally and globally.

Each session is stand-alone, incorporating primarily Malaysian standard forms of contract, in particular PAM 2006/2018 and JKR/PWD contracts. These sessions will be different compared to the previous similar sessions conducted under MBAM and PAM as the emphasis will be on MCO and difficult uncertain times ahead.

  • Architect’s Client Brief – Development and Process
