BPE Construction & Engineering Newsletter – May 2014

April was a funny old month with a welcome break in the middle for Easter.  Inbetween mouthfuls of chocolate eggs (maybe that was just Anna and Katie who had given up chocolate for Lent!) we were out and about as usual:

  •  Katie and Anna had some excellent technical training on engineering issues from Capita
  • Jon and Anna met with Debra Drew of Fabric Architecture to film a case study video for our website (keep checking back to see when it’s uploaded)
  • Jon attended the Gloucestershire Energy Event at Gloucestershire College
  • Anna went to the Cotswold Life spring drinks at Crazy Eights and had a good catch up with Phil “twinkle toes” McCabe from Britannia Construction
  • Jon was continuing his training for the 900 charity cycle ride across Europe (see below)

 Back in the office we’ve been kept on our toes considering issues such as:

  •  Preparing a Repair & Maintenance Contract based on the JCT format
  • Ensuring that contract are executed properly (to avoid clients having wasted their money in paying us to prepare and negotiate them!)
  • Dealing with litigation where the defendant admits liability but refuses to pay interest or costs
  • Structuring the construction aspects of various renewables projects
  • Taking new instructions on an exciting project for a college
