Construction

Boyes Turner’s Construction team is supported by experts from our Development, Commercial property, Planning and Property dispute teams. We provide a one-stop shop for all contentious and non-contentious issues for key players in construction projects including contractors, owners/developers, sub-contractors, consultants and lenders.

The team works closely with clients from the preparation of project documentation prior to the commencement of a project, through to drawing up sub-contracts and collateral warranties as and when these are required. We regularly advise on professional appointments; building contracts and sub-contracts; collateral warranties; and bonds.

We have considerable experience in helping clients anticipate and prevent construction and engineering disputes including:

  • All types of standard forms disputes
  • Claims for defective works
  • Contract termination
  • Disputes with warranty providers such as the NHBC
  • Extensions of time
  • Final account disputes
  • Loss and expense

Where disputes arise we aim to solve problems quickly, cost-effectively and wherever possible without resorting to formal dispute resolution processes. However, where it is required, we are highly experienced in Technology and Construction Court litigation and can also help to resolve cases through adjudication, arbitration and mediation.
