In this second podcast of three, founder and MD Paul Gibbons asks, why do we need variations? What is the purpose of them in construction contracts? Where do they sit in the contract framework and how do you know if something is (or isn’t) a variation.

This is part of a series of three podcasts based on a webinar presented to the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners. Paul seeks to answer a range of questions, including:

  • What is key jargon and terminology involved in variations?
  • What are your obligations and duties?
  • Who can instruct variations?
  • Is the contractor entitled to be paid?

Paul looks at a range of standard form contracts and the effects for people working under different forms. For part 1 in the series, click here. For part 3, click here.
