Our non-contentious construction team provides advice in relation to all construction related projects, from initial procurement strategy to the drafting of project documentation and strategic advice on risks following completion. Our aim is to assist in maximising profits and maintaining project cashflow, while reducing risk and liability for our clients. We operate a fully integrated team across our three UK offices and our European and international network.

The team advises across all of the firm's sectors with particular expertise in major PRS schemes, student accommodation, hotels, healthcare, energy infrastructure schemes and utility infrastructure schemes. Our expertise extends across all standard forms of contract, including the JCT, ICE, NEC, FIDIC and IChemE suites of contract, bespoke EPC and other construction contracts as well as professional body forms of consultant appointment.

We act for all stages of the supply chain, from local authorities and other governmental bodies, to banks and other funding institutions, national and international developers, main contractors, major specialist subcontractors and consultants.
