Article summary

Welcome to the weekly Construction highlights from the Lexis®PSL Construction team for the week ending 28 July 2016. This week’s edition of Construction highlights includes a case concerning the ability to stipulate the amount of works that may be sub-contracted under public procurement law (Wrocław) and a Scottish case on the rectification of a collateral warranty (Albyn v Active Air Conditioning). Sarah Schütte of Schutte Consulting Limited explores key trends in portfolio, project and programme management, and we see the publication of the final report on the civil courts structure review. We also highlight news analysis from other practice areas relevant to construction, including of a case on joint venture documents (CitizenM LND v Chil) and a case on the existence of an implied term not to terminate in bad faith (Monde Petroleum SA v Westernzagros). New content this week includes reference copies of the JCT ShortSub and SubSub 2016 editions, plus updates to our NEC3 suite of materials. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
