Karen Gough has received thanks from the AIAC for her ongoing contribution and work on the production of AIAC’s second edition forms, following the successful launch of the AIAC 2019 SFCs on 28th November 2018.
Both Karen and the AIAC remain committed towards ensuring the AIAC SFCs will meet prevailing standards, with Karen continuing to support as a member of the Expert Advisory Committee.
AIAC’s Standard Form of Contracts (SFC) is a suite of standard form contracts that are customizable and freely available for print and download. AIAC’s SFC was inspired by the prevalent issues plaguing the Malaysian construction industry, aimed at filling the gaps of existing standard form building contracts in governing relationships, rights and duties of parties to a building construction project. It is user-friendly, incorporates Plain English Drafting, and includes clearer provisions to guide users in interpreting the contract. AIAC’s SFC is Malaysia’s first ever CIPAA-compliant suite of building contracts and contains more mechanisms for parties to resolve disputes and deadlocks including mediation, encouraging parties to continue work despite disputes, while preserving parties’ rights till completion. The hallmark of AIAC’s SFC is continuity of works and working relationships.
