Ciarb North West Branch and ICE are delighted to welcome two distinguished practitioners to explain the ways in which extension of time for delay and recovery of prolongation costs are dealt with under the two most widely used species of contract - JCT for building works and NEC for civil engineering works- in the UK.
John Littler is a practising Claims Consultant and Adjudicator and an RICS representative on the JCT Council. Patrick Waterhouse is a Chartered Civil Engineer and Chartered Surveyor. He is a construction adjudicator and accredited mediator. He was part of the team that drafted the NEC4 contracts and is deputy chair of ICE’s Dispute Resolution Panel and chairs CIArb’s Professional Conduct Committee.
The respective JCT and NEC regimes adopt very different approaches to dealing with delay /disruption and cost/loss events which all too frequently beset construction projects. The speakers will explore the differences and, with your help, consider which of the regimes provides the fairer sharing of risk and reward, better clarity for the parties and certainty of outcome. This event will be of interest to all those in the construction industry who use or advise on these forms.
