Contracts and project advisory
The team advise on all front-end aspects of projects, including: contract reviews and tender checks; contract formation and project procurement; tender procedures and competitions; the negotiation and conclusion of contract documents; joint venturing and contractual entitlement; project variations; and dispute avoidance.
We have extensive experience of advising on various procurement routes, including: traditional, design and build, construction management, management construction, partnering, alliancing and PPP, including PFI and LIFT.
Recently, we have advised on several variations and terminations on long-term contracts including two of the largest by value PFIs procured in the UK.
The team are often involved in innovative procurement procedures, such as drafting the first and second editions of the CIC BIM Protocol in the UK, and helping shape collaborative arrangements such as alliancing agreements by advising bidders during many competitive dialogues.
