Construction Contracts

Despite the prevalence of standard construction contracts, such as NEC and JCT, construction professionals are increasingly encountering amended or bespoke contracts. Even a change in a single term could mean a significant deviation from a standard construction contract, carrying a serious amount of risk and liability. If not thoroughly vetted, this could result in damaging and costly legal processes or alternative dispute resolution procedures.

The service we offer

Davies and Davies will review your construction contract and identify clauses of potential concern. We will give you a clear understanding of the non-standard terms in your contract and advise on a suitable course of action, whether that means negotiating out of risks, or accepting them with a greater confidence in how to manage them accordingly. We’ll work to protect your interests and optimise your contractual entitlements, helping to prevent damage and costs.

Services offered

  • Representatives with extensive experience in construction and engineering contracts
  • Jargon-free contract vetting of contractual terms and obligations
  • Identification of both concerns and opportunities existing within a contract
  • A strong knowledge of standard contracts, informing our assessment of amendments
  • Authoritative advice on negotiation of terms and risk management
  • Authoritative advice on unclear or inconsistent terms within a contract
