Construct.Law - Summer 2020

We’re delighted to share our Summer edition of Construct.law, our bi-annual Construction, Engineering and Projects publication.

Inevitably the impact of COVID-19 continues to dominate the headlines and affect our daily lives, both personally and professionally. This edition considers the impact of the crisis on both global supply chains and local site-level health and safety issues.

Aside from COVID-19, the Supreme Court’s decision in Bresco Electrical Services Ltd (In Liquidation) v Michael J Lonsdale (Electrical) Ltd has generated much interest from the industry. With insolvencies sadly expected to increase in the coming months, it is perhaps timely that liquidators have now been permitted to commence adjudications (although challenges remain at the enforcement stage).  

This edition also includes interesting and wide-ranging articles on issues such the HMRC’s crackdown on personal service companies, the use of drones to collect data and the exclusion of indirect and consequential losses. There is an update on the Government’s reforms to the building safety regime in response to the Grenfell tragedy. Finally, we get back to basics and look at the law relating to variations. 

Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss any of the issues covered by Construct.Law or if there are any topics which you would like us to cover in future editions.
