Construction analysis: The court held, in Part 8 proceedings, that a contractor was not entitled to the remaining 50% of its fee under a pre-construction services agreement (PCSA) which had been terminated by consent, even though it had performed all of its services under the PCSA. In the court’s view, the PCSA provided that the only payment due to the contractor following termination was in respect of services carried out during the month in which termination occurred, and this did not include the remainder of the fee (which was only payable if the parties entered into a construction contract).
