Remarks for in depth studies: Civil law countries usually provide for a complete set of concepts and rules as to frequently used types of transactions also referred to as default rules. Hence one will find a particular type of sales contract, a particular type of contract for services and a one for works, each having particular characteristics such as a locatio conductio operis compared with a locatio conductio operarum and each being shaped in a way which has been considered being appropriate.
Hence it can be said that under civil law the parties will make their contract in contemplation of a pre-determined contractual framework which they may shape and modify in order to meet the common intentions.

The extent to which a pre-determined type of contract may be modified without switching to another pre-determined type of contract depends on the applicable law. Although contractual freedom is widely recognised being a rule so called innominate contracts, whether bespoke or standardised such as FIDIC forms of contracts , are rarely accepted as such although being generally admitted.
Instead the opinion prevails that contracts may have a mixed nature thus being amended partially by the pre-existing framework of one nominate contract and partially amended by the pre-existing framework of a another nominate contract, as it may the case for a design, build and operate contract if the operation service meets the elements of a simple service contract by which the contractor undertakes to perform services with due skill and care only best efforts approach whilst the contractor shall deliver the Works under the regime of a locatio conductio operis.
This statue provides that standard terms of contract are invalid if they put that party to the contract, which has not drafted these terms, in a position which is unreasonably disadvantageous and this is a result of bad faith of the drafter. If there is doubt, an unreasonable disadvantage is assumed if a standard contract term cannot be reconciled with essential basic principles of the statutory rule from which the contract term deviates. Or: if it restricts essential rights or duties resulting from the nature of the contract in such a way that it endangers the purpose of the contract to an extent that this purpose will not be achieved.
Only within these statutory limits the parties of a construction contract are free to assume risks in standard business terms. Just recently the German legislator has enacted a privilege that partially makes Part B of the contracting rules for governmental contracts immune against judicial review. However, German courts are allowed to review the Vergabe- und Vertragsordnung part B in the event that a consumer is a party to the contract.Second, the clauses which Agreement,4th edn Fidic, a.
