Capital Projects

School Capital Projects

Successful schools are at the heart of their communities, offering facilities not only to students and staff, but also to the wider community. Capital projects are key to boosting the school's facilities but they can also present disruption and have a serious impact on the running of the school in terms of time, cost and resource.

Expert Legal Advice and Support

We can provide you with comprehensive and cost effective legal advice at each stage of a capital project which is tailored to meet the specific requirements of the education sector.

We can help with:

  • Project Planning - we can draft and negotiate all of the documents dealing with all aspects of a capital project to address development, site assembly and planning issues.

  • Project Procurement -  we can guide you through possible procurement strategies, advise you on the advantages and disadvantages associated with each strategy and assist you in selecting the most appropriate strategy to deliver your project.

  • Dispute Resolution - we understand that disputes are disruptive and can ruin critical relationships between the parties. Our team offers highly skilled, commercial advice to provide the most efficient and cost effective method of resolving any dispute.

  • Added Value - regular sessions with clients and professional bodies such as the RIBA, RICS and CIOB allow us to provide updates on legal developments and provide training on specific issues such as the administration of building contracts and dispute resolution.
