  • Overview

    Documentation to provide a solid foundation to your project

    Everyone involved in a construction project, large or small, needs properly prepared, commercially sound project documentation.

    • For businesses outside the construction industry, our experienced lawyers use their in-depth knowledge of the industry to guide you through the process, identifying potential options and risks, helping you maintain control of the costs
    • For those inside the industry, we know how to identify and adapt to the day-to-day opportunities and challenges you face, to safeguard your bottom line. Applying our legal expertise to your construction issues.
       

    Benefits of sound project documentation

    The earlier you consult us the better. Having good project documentation in place from the beginning does much more than tick the financial box. It can:

    • Ensure the whole professional team is on board and their roles clear from the outset
    • Put all contractors on the same footing during the tendering process to ensure that pricing is clear from the outset
    • Work as a tool for driving the project forward
    • Identify possible opportunities and predict potential issues
    • Embed proper contract administration from the start
    • Prevent or manage delays and losses
    • Protect you from disputes or result in early resolution.
       

    Tailored construction contracts and other documentation

    Every project has its quirks. The legal documentation needs to be tailored to fit your project otherwise it is of little practical use and may not provide the most cost-effective solution.

    We structure documentation around the operational requirements of the project, so that it deals with the issues particular to your situation, and aligns with your way of working. We take account of the wider short and long term commercial goals of your business – what you want to achieve further down the line is often a key factor in how the construction contracts and other documentation is structured.
