Article summary

Welcome to the weekly Construction highlights from the Lexis®PSL Construction team for the week ending 21 April 2016. This week’s edition of Construction highlights includes analysis of Stellite Construction v Vascroft Contractors (in which an adjudicator was found to have exceeded his jurisdiction), Sisk v Carmel (an appeal of an arbitral award concerning payment following termination) and COD Hyde v Space Change (which concerned a statutory demand made against an employer who had failed to make interim payments). We look as well at a challenge to the new construction training levy (R (Hudson) v BIS) and a tax decision concerning the CIS (Donnithorne v HMRC). Also this week, James Worthington and Tim Raper of Charles Russell Speechlys look at the risks to contractors under RIBA contracts, and Sarah Schütte of Schutte Consulting and Clare Bristow of Arup Group comment on gender parity in construction. We also highlight analysis of interest to Construction practitioners from other practice areas, including an analysis of the Public Procurement (Amendments, Repeals and Revocations) Regulations 2016. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
