Managing construction risk: design and performance liabilities in construction contracts
Recent case law has brought into sharp focus the challenges faced in the construction industry in managing risk and liability when a structure fails to meet its intended performance. The construction industry has a well-publicised ‘performance gap’ between the intended performance of our buildings and infrastructure, and the actual performance once the assets have been built. But where does the responsibility lie when a project meets its intended design but fails in its intended purpose? And where does the liability lie in extreme instances where cases reach the courts?
Charles Russell Speechlys and Atkin Chambers will present an evening workshop examining these issues. The evening will include:
- Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC giving a presentation on the most recent and pertinent cases in this area including the Supreme Court’s decision in MT Hojgaard v E.On
- A group workshop where our partners will host guests in small groups to work through the issues as part of a case study
