Construction

Acuity's Construction team provides a specialist service to the public and private sectors at all stages of construction and engineering projects and is able to advise clients on a full range of construction and related issues.

In an often complex world we aim to provide practical advice and documentation to simplify the contractual and legal process.

We regularly provide advice to clients on procurement strategy (whether traditional route, design and build, a Public Private Partnership or Private Finance Initiative).  We also provide advice in relation to partnering and collaborative arrangements including framework agreements.

We are experienced in advising and drafting bespoke amendments to all the standard forms of contract (including JCT, ICE, GC/Works, NEC/ECC, PPC2000 and Be Collaborative) as well as all standard forms of professional appointment and warranties.

We are recognised for being able to react quickly and provide the support and guidance necessary to effectively and efficiently support clients in managing and resolving disputes including mediation, expert determination, adjudication, arbitration and litigation.

Members of the construction team are regularly asked to write on topical issues for trade publications and speak at conferences.
