Every construction or engineering project needs a satisfactory payment mechanism.

In this breakfast seminar, ​presented in three locations, our Partner, Keith Bishop, will ​look at the issue of getting paid under a construction contract.

In light of recent cases on ‘payment’ it’s time to look at how the changes to the payment mechanisms introduced in 2011 compare to what we had before and how they might be working in practice. We’ll examine good practice and how the courts have been approaching some of the payment issues put to them in recent years.

A refresher and a practical guide to ensuring your contract complies with the legislation and what you need to do to get paid if you’re a party to a construction contract.
