Construction & Engineering Newsletter February 2014
Well the year has continued at a flying pace for the team, reflecting the positive news of growth for the sector as a whole. As readers will know, it was reported just last week that the PMI rose to 64.6 in January, which was the strongest reading since August 2007. The glut of new instructions for project and development work certainly tells us that our clients are very much part of this growth. We would love to hear your stories. Don’t forget to tweet us (@bpeconstruction) as we would be delighted to share your successes with our followers (which have now topped the 700 mark).
What have we been up to?
January 2014 saw the team mainly dealing with new instructions but we have also made exciting progress on existing matters. Highlights of the month include:
Reached advantageous settlement for our client in a professional negligence claim relating to asbestos
Read a report on an adjudication of a matter with facts which were scarily parallel to those of a dispute we are currently advising on, and which happily supports our client’s case
Attended a meeting about the ongoing progress on the new development of a GP surgery, which we have been advising on for over two years now
Took on a number of Party Wall matters
Advised on contracts relating to an exciting project in Quatar
