Case Judgment date Summary
SSE Generation Limited v Hochtief Solutions AG [2016] CSOH 177 21 December 2016 Defects: The Scottish Court of Session, Outer House held that, under Option M of a NEC2 contract, the contractor was only liable for defects where it had failed to use reasonable skill and care to comply with the works information. However, under the terms of the contract, it should have carried out the remedial works and sought payment after liability had been determined. The court also concluded that the cost of third party remedial works was reasonable, even though it had increased significantly.
