Case Judgment date Summary
Ziggurat (Claremont Place) LLP v HCC International Insurance Company plc [2017] EWHC 3286 (TCC) 20 December 2017 Bonds/insolvency: In Part 8 proceedings, the TCC made declarations concerning the liability of the defendant surety to the claimant employer under the terms of a performance bond based on the ABI Model Form. The court held that the contractor’s insolvency was enough to trigger the bond (due to a bespoke amendment), and that in any event the contractor had been in breach of the construction contract (which incorporated the JCT conditions) by failing to pay the amount due to the employer following insolvency as ascertained under the contract.
