Dealing with the effects of COVID-19 in the ambit of the SAICE Suite of GCC Contracts

To all SARF Members,

Over the past months, the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has also started having an effect on South Africa and many of its economic sectors.

The South African construction industry is one of the industries which is severely affected not only by a national lockdown, but also by other unforeseen situations related to prevailing conditions that may be related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most construction projects have become under threat within a short period of time resulting in unforeseen delays, disruptions and additional costs, as caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The notice in the link analyses the generic impact on construction projects under the SAICE Suite of Contracts and gives guidance on the roles, rights, obligations and remedies of the Employer, Contractor and Subcontractor under conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
