Construction Case Law Update

A recent spate of cases from the TCC has brought into sharp focus a number of issues for Employers and Contractors surrounding the completion and termination of projects and the importance placed on contract drafting in determining the rights and obligations of the parties.

There have also been a number of decisions recently regarding the enforcement of Adjudication decisions and the fallout from the decision in S&T (UK) Ltd v Grove continues to impact payment regimes and “smash and grab adjudications”. With the introduction of the new VAT reverse charge on 1 October 2019, payment issues are bound to continue to persist.

During this seminar we will discuss:

  • Mears Ltd v Costplan Services (South East) Ltd which concerned the contractual requirements for practical completion and the consequences of failing to meet those requirements.
  • Triple Point Technology Inc v PTT Public Company Ltd and the rights of the employer to apply liquidated damages following termination of the contract.
  • Adjudication Case Law Update – including the implications on challenging “smash and grab adjudications” with “true value adjudications”.
  • Key points to be aware of for employers and contractors regarding the pending implementation of the VAT Reverse Charge.

The seminar will take place in both our London and Guildford offices.
