Abstract: Contractors frequently experience site conditions different to those anticipated in their bids. These different site conditions could include soil conditions that are different to what was expected such as large unexpected boulders or service lines to divert. When is it an unforseen adverse physical conditions? What are the risks? How could adverse physical conditions be prevented? How can it be anticipated? When an instance of differing site conditions occur, what are the best way to deal with it? These are all questions that should be considered when construction projects are planned in order to avoid risks to the project. The unforseen adverse physical conditions on site could have serious repercussions for both the empolyers and contractors. They could also be implications for other project participants. This dissertation will address the concepts of adverse physical conditions as indicated by FIDIC Conditions of Contract and what those clause entails for both employers and contractors. By investigating the relevant clauses, their operation, and then viewing the clauses in the context of Singapore s construction industry, a series of recommendation and conclusions will be drawn to aid the industry in being more competitive and knowledgable in handling and overcoming risks of adverse physical conditions.
