Construction & Engineering Newsletter November 2014

October was another busy month for the team with a lot of new instructions on project work. We have been out and about as usual:

• Jon met up with clients in London to make introductions in the urban regeneration world

• He’s also been assisting our Stroud office to build upon their manufacturing & engineering profile, as well as providing a steer on short form EPC contracts to those in the renewable energy sector

• Anna attended a fantastic Constructing Excellence Gloucestershire Club event focussing on collaborative working

• Anna went for a site visit to the re-development of Cheltenham Racecourse with Women in Property.

Back in the office we’ve been dealing with the following:

• Lots of redevelopment work, particularly relating to leisure, healthcare and heritage residential – all over the country

• Defending a tripartite c. £ ½ million contract claim in the TCC relating to allegedly defective design

• Helping various clients get their sub-contractor T&Cs in better shape

• More adjudications: including dealing with yet more novel jurisdictional challenges

• Advising on good bread and butter provisions relating to early warning and compensation events as part of a further education project
