Article summary

Welcome to the weekly Construction highlights from the Lexis®PSL Construction team for the week ending 4 February 2016. This week’s edition of Construction highlights includes analysis of Commercial Management v Mitchell Design and Regorco, where the TCC considered whether a limitation clause had been incorporated into a subcontract, and of J Browne Construction v Chapman Construction, in which a contractor argued that subcontractor labour costs had been claimed fraudulently. We also take a look at Counted4 Community Interest v Sunderland City Council, in which the TCC applied the American Cyanamid principles to reg 96(1) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. This week’s news also sees an update from JCT of the main changes featured in the new 2016 Edition of contracts, which is due to be published later this year, and the results of a RIBA survey, which found NEC3 to be the most favoured form of contract. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
