Construction

From start to finish, we understand how construction projects work.

Our clients come to us because we know what it takes to get a development out of the ground and through to completion. And if things aren’t working out, we can help them navigate the issues.

We’re experts at drafting and negotiating all forms of construction and engineering contracts. If we’re involved at the outset of the project, we can also advise on your structure and procurement strategy. Whether it’s a straightforward £5million design and build, or a complex, multi-phased £1billion infrastructure project, we’ll be happy to give our input.

We also know that not all projects go according to plan. We’re on hand to help with strategic discussions and commercial positioning to avoid formal disputes. If a dispute is unavoidable, or if you find yourself in one before having the opportunity to talk to us, we are experienced and known in the market for representing parties in construction disputes.

To help you develop your own knowledge, we can deliver bespoke training sessions covering part or all of the above.

If you’re a Welsh public sector organisation, you can easily access our services via the National Procurement Service.
