Background


New approach to tunnelling and underground risk
Introduction to the FIDIC Emerald Book

TWO- DAY ONLINE WORKSHOP
20-21 OCTOBER 2021

Underground construction is a fast growing market sector, on account of the growing demand for utilization of underground space for infrastructure.

Underground construction is highly dependent on the geological, hydrogeological and geotechnical groundmass characteristics, which have a defining influence on the means and methods required for the successful construction of the Works. In addition, the difficulty in predicting ground behavior and foreseeable conditions implies an inherent uncertainty in underground construction which gives rise to unique risks regarding construction practicability, time and cost.

The Workshop aims at providing participants with the basic information required to apply the Emerald Book effectively before tender and during execution of the Works. It highlights the salient features of this particular Form of Contracts, regarding the allocation of ground related risks, the consideration of time and of time related cost, and contract management during construction.
