Busy construction team

23rd Jun 2020

It’s been a busy few months for the construction team despite Lockdown.


We have yet another example of how vitally important the use of a Pay Less notice is in the building industry, having recovered a substantial sum of money for a contractor and also succeeding for a sub-contractor as the main contractor had failed to issue a valid Pay Less Notice pursuant to Section 111 Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 due to one not being served.

We are currently acting on the recovering of a final contract on a 4 year project with a build cost of £12,500,000 and on a dispute over a defective roof for a shopping complex. In addition, we are dealing with various claims for breaches of contract in relation to design and naturally advising on delays arising from Covid 19 and Force Majeure and Frustration issues.

Our skilled and experienced Litigation team have a wide depth of knowledge relating to the construction industry – if you are experiencing issues with enforcing a contract or any construction and building claims, you can contact us on 01603 675639 or at ph@rogers-norton.co.uk.

We are also experience in drafting and advising on construction contracts including JCT contracts, and also Adjudication, Arbitration, Mediation and Expert Determination.
