Construction and engineering industry project documents
Flint Bishop’s Construction & Engineering team support companies with the preparation of all documents in a construction or engineering project. This can include:
This includes building contracts and demolition contracts using all standard industry forms such as JCT, NEC, MF/1 and NFDC.
We are experienced in negotiating complex schedules of amendments to the standard form contracts (which is commonplace in the industry) from the mindset of a funder, tenant, employer or contractor, including tracking obligations from third-party agreements into building contracts (i.e. back-to-back contracts).
Our team can prepare all of the professional appointments necessary for the successful design, tendering, procurement, construction and completion of your construction or engineering project.
Alternatively, we are commonly requested to provide advice on industry standard or bespoke forms which you have received in order for you to understand your company’s risk exposure.
The cornerstone of our approach is to be pragmatic and commercial, focusing only on those issues that are unreasonable for you in any given circumstance.
Our team can prepare collateral warranties so that you have the right to bring a claim against subcontractors and sub-subcontractors in the event of defect, along with negotiating and agreeing appropriate collateral warranties in favour of any third party stakeholders from the project team which is often a requirement of any development agreement or funding agreement.
We act for both developers and those investing or acquiring stakes in major projects on the use and risks posed by various forms of security documentation such as Parent Company Guarantees, bonds and warranties, and the application of the Third-Party Rights Act.
Document management service
We provide a document management service with a view to removing the essential but time and labour-intensive task of controlling the completion of your construction or engineering documentation.
Our team manages the preparation, engrossment, circulation and completion of each construction or engineering document in relation to your project, including the preparation and circulation of collateral warranties, to ensure that the documents have been completed correctly and your rights and obligations are as you intended.
