Welcome to the weekly Construction highlights from the Lexis®PSL Construction team for the week ending 28 January 2016. This week’s edition of Construction highlights includes analysis of Sisk v Duro Felguera, where the TCC considered an alleged breach of natural justice and whether adjudicators are permitted to use assistants, and also a review of a Scottish case in which a consultant was, despite its best efforts, ordered to provide a collateral warranty years after a project had been completed. We highlight analysis of interest to Construction practitioners from other practice areas, particularly in relation to public procurement this week, including analysis of the European Single Procurement Document, plus Lightways (Contractors) v Inverclyde Council which is the first instance of a UK court applying the remedy of ineffectiveness in respect of an awarded public contract, and a recent challenge to a public contract awarded by the Home Office. Updated content this week includes our Practice Note on the Scheme for Construction Contracts.
