Dovetailing neatly with the pure construction side of chambers' work, we frequently act for and against architects and engineers in a wide variety of disputes, ranging from domestic minor works contracts to multi-million pound commercial developments. We appear in courts, arbitrations and adjudications.
We have been involved in claims against architects concerning allegations of negligent design and specification, cost and other advice, provision of design information, contract administration and inspection or supervision. We have experience of claims against engineers concerning geotechnical investigations, design of foundations, other structural issues and mechanical and electrical design...
We also have extensive experience of claims against other construction professions, such as project managers and quantity surveyors.
