A. R. A. Gomes

In the framework of the FIDIC Emerald Book, the Geotechnical Baseline Report (GBR) plays a pivotal role in the management and contractual allocation of geotechnical risks between the Parties. A major distinction of the GBR concept proposed in the Emerald Book with respect to traditional GBR formats consists in the incorporation of a baseline of excavation, support and lining works, which are applied during construction in accordance with the actual encountered subsurface conditions and used with the purpose of remeasurement and adjustment of contractual construction time and cost. This paper presents a brief discussion on relevant concepts and elements associated with the proposed GBR concept, including suggestions for its practical implementation under the Emerald Book and similar contract forms.
