Construction and engineering: look forward to 2022
As one year ends and another begins, now is the perfect time to reflect on some of the key changes in the construction sector over the last 12 months and the challenges to be faced in the year ahead. In this short series of new year inspired video blogs, the construction and engineering team aim to bring you quickly up to speed with these developments and provide you with practical, effective advice that you can look to incorporate into your projects going forward. Covering a range of topics from building regulations and standard-form contracts to adjudication and alternative dispute resolution, these will be relevant to all parties involved in the construction industry.
Adjudication continues to be the most popular form of dispute resolution for construction claims and that doesn’t look likely to change any time soon. In our first episode, Claire Perry of the construction team takes a brief look back at the adjudication highlights of 2021 and offers some practical tips for future adjudications in 2022.
Look out for our next episodes:
- Extensions of time under Standard Form Contracts
- Upcoming changes to Building Regulations – What do we know?
- Dropping the "alternative" in "alternative dispute resolution" – a move towards compulsory ADR for construction disputes?
- Suspension and Termination Provisions under Common Law Contracts
