The project comprised development in two phases. Phase 1 is approximately 26,000 square feet, built over 2 floors and providing 15 en-suite bedrooms, 2 endoscopy suites and 2 operating theatres.

Contract Drafting

We are highly experienced in drafting and negotiating all standard form domestic and international construction and engineering contracts, in particular JCTNEC, IChemE, GC/Works, FIDIC, plus RIBA and RICS contracts and appointments.

We understand the current contract suites and how to amend them to suit the circumstances of our client and a specific project.

We know how and when to use construction agreements in addition to the main construction contract, for example sub-contracts, consultant appointments, development agreements, funding agreements, insurance agreements, collateral warranties, novations, guarantees and bonds. We also help clients draft and adapt terms & conditions, in particular for suppliers.

Our clients value our tailored and balanced approach to drafting and negotiating contracts. We can advise on the number and types of amendments required, prioritising key changes and how to best manage client risk.
