Our service includes setting up commercial construction contracts to avoid claims such as reviewing and drafting contract terms including JCT contract terms, and conditions to minimise risk through to the assessment, drafting, presentation and management of construction claims. We have vast experience of advising on JCT Contracts and NEC Contracts, including rights that are contained such as contract termination, delays and extension of time. For further advice on construction contracts, read our article 'Avoiding Disputes - The Importance of Construction Contracts'.
We advise on the problems and solutions that can arise if a construction site was forced to close, either by statutory power or force majeure. If a construction site is forced to close, the obvious impact would be construction delay and it might be necessary to prepare a delay notice and delay analysis. It is important to understand your rights and whether your construction contract contains a force majeure clause.
Many construction Contractors have been
affected by Covid-19, whether it be issues with labour or supplies, or the
requirement of social distancing affecting site productivity, potentially
causing further delays.

Arbicon’s forensic service is ideal for checking that construction contracts are being operated properly, for example, document management, service of notices, and valuation, or where it has all gone wrong, which naturally includes evaluating any professional management person(s) so as to avoid or rectify any damage by professional negligence, which can be difficult to reverse and incur a great deal of misery and cost.
|Arbicon can look at any construction claim going back 6-12 years to evaluate and obtain justice provided the other party still exists.|
