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.
In episode 4, Christopher Lamb considers suspension and termination provisions under common law construction contracts and some of the notable misconceptions surrounding these. Consideration is also given as to practical steps the parties can take to avoid these issues arising on their own projects going forward.
