The 12KBW construction team is able to advise on most agreements for the supply of building and engineering services, and we are fully conversant with the JCT and RIBA standard forms of construction and allied contracts. Our barristers are particularly well placed to deal with issues such as contractual indemnity clauses and breach of contract claims in the context of construction site accidents.
Our construction team has considerable expertise in professional negligence claims made against architects, engineers, surveyors and other building, design and construction professionals.
Several 12KBW barristers are instructed by the owners of underground service media on claims arising from damage caused during building works.
Our recent cases include a claim for fire damage involving interpretation of the construction contract and of warranties in a PL policy, and an action by a building owner against a design and build contractor/sub-contractors in respect of design defects leading to catastrophic personal injury.
