Construction & Property Development

Property Development and Construciton Advice

We can provide you with comprehensive property development advice at each stage of the construction process, from design and procurement through to completion, occupation and management.

This means that if you are engaged in the real estate industry, we have the range of skills and specialist expertise you need to help you with all the construction aspects of a property development.

In all cases we can help you to maximise the commercial advantages of the appropriate procurement route and provide you with the right commercial solution.

We regularly advise building owners, funders, developers, contractors, end users and those administering the contract terms upon their rights and obligations in all aspects of the construction process.

We have many years' experience in advising on standard forms of building and engineering contracts (NEC, JCT, ICE, ACA, GC Works and FIDIC forms of contract), sub-contracts and professional appointments (RIBS, ACE and RICS forms).  This means that we are familiar with the context in which property development and investment operates and how the construction industry and the real estate industry work together in practice.

Our team of specialist construction lawyers can advise you on risk allocation, insurance, quality, time and payment issues.  In addition to advice on building contracts and appointments, we can also assist with the drafting and negotiation of ancillary construction documentation such as collateral warranties, parent company guarantees, performance bonds and letters of intent.
