The real headline differentiator is the amount of risk taken on by the contractor, substantially more under the Silver Book. That risks manifests in many different ways but FIDIC provide a good page for identifying the right contract which will also, by looking through the questions, give a very clear guide as to the key differences in risk allowance.  http://fidic.org/bookshop/about-bookshop/which-fidic-contract-should-i-use
