Welcome once again to Quigg Golden insight, keeping you abreast of developments in construction law.
Our Summer edition leads with David McNeice’s analysis of a case that highlights the important of diligence and clarity in agreeing to scheduled stage payments. John Dunlop carries this forward, asking “when is an instruction for change not an instruction for change?” with particular reference to payments for variations to contract where no written instruction has been issued.
Emma Jane McSteen outlines two new pilot schemes being trialled by the TCC as a mid-point between adjudication and a full blown TCC litigation. From January this year, contracting authorities must accept the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) from bidders as part of the selection process and William Brown assesses the impact of this change.
At Quigg Golden we work hard and we play hard, witness Jonathan Parker’s cycle race against a plane and Edward Quigg’s effort in the London Marathon.
