Construction Law Update - Novation for Consultants

Beale & Company
9 October 2014

Will Buckby (Partner) and Ben Mullard (Associate) of Beale & Company speak about novation, focusing specifically on design and build projects and the issues consultants should consider when negotiating novation agreements.

Design and build projects and the novation of consultants’ appointments from the client to the contractor are increasingly prevalent in the construction sector. This talk provides an introduction to novation and the risks arising, discusses the different approaches to novation (the so called "ab initio" and "switch" forms) and highlights key issues for consultants in novation agreements.
