Article summary

Welcome to the weekly highlights from the Lexis®PSL Construction team for the week ending 4 August 2016. This week’s edition of Construction highlights includes analysis of several Technology and Construction Court (TCC) cases—ZVI v Notre Dame (on expert determination), Scott v EAR Sheppard (on professional negligence), Ground Developments v FCC Construction (on the appointment of an adjudicator) and Lulu v Mulalley (an interesting case concerning the costs of running an adjudication). Adrian Bell of CMS explores the future of the construction industry post-Brexit, and Mark Fletcher of Russell-Cooke looks at the use of statutory demands to recover debts on construction projects. We also highlight analysis of interest to construction lawyers from other practice areas, including of Glenluce v Watermota (a TCC case on amending a claim after expiry of the limitation period) and of the Civil Justice Council (CJC) report on concurrent expert evidence. New content this week sees an updated Practice Note on the Third Parties (Rights Against Insurers) Acts. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
