3 Historical Sites Of Interest In Amman, Jordan

Blog provided by Monte Carlo Rent a Car, LLC Are you a history buff? Over the centuries, Jordan has had a diverse and storied set of occupants, including the Roman and Ottoman Empires. Many of those civilizations’ fingerprints remain in Jordan’s capital city, Amman. Here are a few historical relics you may want to visit in Amman. Amman Citadel The Amman Citadel is probably the most famous cluster of historical sites within a small radius. If you visit the citadel, you can see the remains of an Umayyad Palace, a Byzantine church, and the famous Temple of Hercules. Marvel at the disembodied fingers of a giant statue of Hercules at the site of the temple. Roman Theatre This ancient amphitheater is remarkably preserved, with a good portion of the gate and seating structure still standing. Today, it is still used as a venue for music, ceremonies, and other activities. When it’s not in use, tourists can visit and take photos of this enduring site. Roman Nymphaeum This robust structure was built as a monument to the nymphs, ancient nature spirits that were part of the Greco-Roman pantheon of gods and goddesses. You can still observe the curved structures, arches, and columns that formerly housed intricately constructed architecture and decorative designs.

Key provisions in a construction contract to reduce claims

Key provisions in a construction contract to reduce claims

Any construction project, big or small, comes with a certain amount of risk. Unless both time and cost have been underestimated, there is a likelihood that the project will have cost overruns and delays. Any construction disputes that arise from such issues usually end up with a construction claim that goes before a mediator or legal authority. One way to limit or reduce the possibility of claims is to ensure that key provisions are in the contract to protect you. Here are some of those clauses: Notice Any request for additional time or cost due to any circumstances must come with written notice to the owner. The owner then has sufficient time to both examine the merits of the claim and make changes to the timeline or cost agreement. When a contractor does not meet the contractual obligation to provide notice, they waive their rights with respect to the contract. Differing conditions At face value, the differing site conditions clause looks like protection for the contractor. When a site does not match the original site condition at the point of inspection, the contractor can ask for a fair adjustment in price. The owner benefits by getting a more realistic figure for the initial costing, as the contractor doesn’t need to pad the estimate to account for any unforeseen changes. Time extension Whenever possible, insist on a clause that makes the contractor financially liable for any delays for the project within their control. Written by Lyle Charles Consulting.
