Webinar: COVID-19 & Professional Consultants in Ireland

COVID-19 & Professional Consultants in Ireland: Contract and Payment Issues, BCAR and H&S Concerns
1 April 2020 

The full impact of COVID-19 on the construction sector and wider Irish society will not be known for some considerable time. However, we do know that the impacts will be very significant. The important thing to do now is to mitigate and manage those impacts wherever possible, so that projects and economic activity in the construction sector can continue given that sites (for the moment at least) may remain open where social distancing can be implemented.

This webinar addresses the contractual issues that arise for professional consultants as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, in the public and private sector, when acting as a member of the Design Team and/or as the Employer’s Representative. It also addresses issues that arise in relation to inspection, certification, payments contingent thereon, other BCAR matters and wider Health and Safety concerns. Emergency legislation to be implemented is also considered.

The content includes practical advice that will be useful to senior staff and management as well as those attending sites on a daily basis.
