ABOUT THE EVENT

Construction project management is the art and practice of bringing together disparate resources and people to build a high-quality structure in a safe, timely and cost-effective manner.

Project construction management differs much from management of more traditional activities. It is a unique one-time operation with one major objective to accomplish a specified task in a limited time framework.

We will be exploring the concept of construction project management and the role of the project manager in the build environment, what constitutes effective construction project management and how the internationally recognised construction contract  - FIDIC 2017 – reinforces the need for effective construction project management.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER, ADINE ABRO

 

 

With an extensive background in complex Construction and Engineering law, I am now flying solo after a stellar career at top tier law firms. I have impressive experience in the drafting and reading of long contracts in the construction space. 

Whether you want to lay a railway line to Timbuktu, build a windfarm using only recycled bottle caps or weld a kettle boiler onto a coal fired power station, I have the imagination and drafting wizardry to bring any contract to life. 
After a string of high profile cases, the parties ranging from a multi- disciplinary Construction and Engineering group, the largest book selling chain in South Africa to an information and communication technology giant, I would be prominent enough as a major case litigator even without the two Supreme Court of Appeal victories. 
My experience encompasses commercial arbitrations, adjudication, DAB hearings, claims negotiations and settlement with reference to the FIDIC suite of contracts, the GCC, the JBCC and the NEC agreements. 
I was known as the wild woman of Sabi Sands chauffeuring guests in my lesser spotted Land Rover before marking my territory and staking my claim as leader of the pride in dispute resolution in a world where one eats or gets eaten. 
I am occasionally manipulative (on the yoga mat) but just mention bull dogs and I am putty. It’s always good to know where the soft spot is.
