Construction

Led by former QS, John Bradley, RCB’s construction team consists of individuals with a working understanding of the industry. John also runs the Contractors Legal Group, the main umbrella association for major contractors. He also sits on the boards of JCT and Construction Industry Publications.

Much emphasis is placed in resolving clients’ disputes through Mediation, Adjudication or Arbitration. Where proceedings are threatened or necessary, we encourage resolution through the use of the Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes or simply through hard and tactical negotiation with or without expert evaluation.

Our clients are main contractors, subcontractors, employers and developers, insurers, suppliers, trade associations, receivers and liquidators. Typical advice can centre on the following areas:

  • Contract formation and letters of intent
  • Bonds, guarantees and warranties
  • Defective design and construction
  • Loss and expense
  • Critical path analysis
  • Variations
  • Determination of contract
  • Retention of title disputes
  • Disputes between parties to the building project
  • Extensions of time and damages for delay
