Charles Phipps

Construction Professionals

Claims against construction professionals require (more than most) a willingness to grapple with factual detail in a legal context. Charles’s belief is that a clear focus on the crucial issues can reliably emerge only from a proper mastery of the facts. Cases in which he has been instructed include:

  • a claim against engineers alleging negligence in the design and supervision of a scheme to underpin residential property;
  • the defence by engineers of an action alleging the negligent design of electronic equipment;
  • the defence by quantity surveyors of an action alleging a negligent failure to identify asbestos in a survey of commercial premises;
  • the defence by architects of an action alleging negligent design of a factory roof; 
  • the defence by project managers of an action alleging negligent administration of a building contract relating to brewery premises;
  • a claim against architects alleging the negligent design/supervision of the construction of a block of flats;
  • the defence by architects of a claim alleging negligent supervision of a major office refurbishment;
  • the defence by a firm of architects of a claim alleging negligent supervision of a domestic building contract.
