Construction Law

We draw regularly on our in depth knowledge of the standard form construction law contracts (including FIDIC, NEC, GCC and JBCC Agreements).

We advise on all aspects of contract administration, contractual entitlements, contract variation and claim procedures, as well as claim preparation and enforcement (or defence) strategies.  We assist clients with the assessment and formulation of delay and disruption claims. Our client base includes construction claim team members, main- and sub-contractors and employers.

Some of our recent construction law exposure includes:

  • Acting for a prominent property developer in a payment dispute against a JSE listed contractor concerning a high end apartment development in Sandton, Johannesburg (claim value of R 30 million);
  • Acting for a JSE listed construction and engineering company, more specifically its steel manufacturing division, concerning the supply of erection materials to be incorporated into two major power station projects (estimated claim value of R 300 million); and
  • Acting for the steel manufacturing division of a JSE listed construction and engineering company concerning the disputed interpretation of an escalation clause (claim value of R 15 million).
