We would like to share with you what we have been working on recently by highlighting some of our recent, new instructions.

James Lee has been instructed to:

  • Prepare a building contract for a local council who is developing a community sports stadium. The contract value is approximately £18 million.
  • Issue a variety of new appointments for a major shopping centre relating to various refurbishment projects, including a larger redevelopment of the common parts at the centre of approximately £8 million in value.

Nitej Davda has been instructed on an a matter relating to the insolvency of a contractor during some major refurbishment works at an historic World War II site. Nitej has also been instructed to advise an employer following a letter from a local council flagging breaches of listed building and planning consent by their contractor.

I have recently received instructions to advise on a number of matters including:

  • Advising an employer on a claim for a variation (and possible delay claim) made by the contractor during works including the demolition of an old out building. The contractor has discovered asbestos that was not reported in a survey carried out by the employer prior to contract formation.
  • Advising a contractor who has not been paid in accordance with the Scheme for Constructions Contracts for the past two months and wanted to understand its options relating to termination and suspension.
