Project Board and Standing Conciliator under PWC: A Success?< back to trainings

Location: Engineers Ireland, 22 Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, Ireland

Seminar Overview

The concept of a Project Board, and also that of a Standing Conciliator, was introduced into the PWC (Public Works Form of Contract) in 2016 as a new Dispute Management Procedure and, since then, both Project Board and Standing Conciliator have become an established feature of all large projects whether building or civil engineering. At the same time Guidance Note GN 3.1.1 was published outlining how the new provisions were to work. Despite that fact, there are clear indications of inconsistency of approach within the industry to the operation of the new Dispute Management Procedure.

Seminar Aim

The aim of this seminar is to bring together a number of professionals within the industry with considerable experience of the new Dispute Management Procedure in order to describe how it is working in practice, to consider how successful it has been and how it might be implemented in the future.


The programme will include:

  • How the Revised Clause 13 is intended to work.
  • Employer's Perspective
  • Contractor's Perspective
  • Employer's Representative Perspective.
  • Standing Conciliator's Perspective
  • Lawyer's Perspective
  • Audience and Panel Discussion

Anyone involved in the PWC contracts either as a public sector employer, contractor or involved in the administration of the PWC contracts.
