The Wind Farm Construction and Operations Procurement Seminar will take place on November 29, 2012, at Wolverton House, in London, UK. Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the procurement and contracting process for wind farm projects.
Getting the procurement and contracting process right first time is all important; making a mistake can be very costly in terms of time and money. This seminar is designed to develop your knowledge of construction procurement and operational procurement and the day is split into focusing on these two distinct areas.
In the first section you will gain the knowledge required to support the construction procurement process, including the advantages and disadvantages of the different structures and forms of construction contract, the purpose of common contractual clauses and typical associated benchmarks, and the importance of developing a comprehensive and appropriate Employer’s Requirements.
The second section, in the afternoon, focuses on the intricacies of the operational procurement process, including the advantages and disadvantages of the different structures and forms of operations contract and current contracting trends, the typical scopes of service works and acceptable exclusions and the purpose of common contractual clauses and typical associated benchmarks.
All attendees will receive notes, and each section is integrated with interactive group discussion and series of case studies to illustrate the value of getting the contracting process right for the construction and operational phases.
