Building & Engineering Projects
Successful projects require careful planning and this is an area where we can add value. Whether the project is for a major developer or institute, or whether it is for a single development client, we can advise at an appropriate level on procurement issues, suitable standard forms of contract, and necessary amendments. If called for, we can produce suites of contracts which are entirely bespoke.
As well as advising on JCT, ICE, NEC/ECC, FIDIC main and subcontract forms we also offer specialist advice on ancillary documentation such as bonds, guarantees, collateral warranties, and consultants' appointments. In all such documents it will be necessary to keep in mind the legislative provisions which affect construction specifically.
Equally important to assisting employers with procurement is our vetting of contracts for main contractors and subcontractors, and negotiating their terms with other parties. We work with clients to establish whether their need is for a strategic over-view, a detailed assessment of all the intended conditions, or to highlight terms which are unusual or of particular commercial significance.
