The Construction Act - one year after

It has been over year since the amendment of Part II of the Housing Grants, Regeneration and Construction Act 1996 (Construction Act) by Part 8 of Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009 (New Act) came into force.

This series of articles track the journey of the New Act and provides specialist insight on working with the amendments. The articles share the information gathered from a survey on Understanding and Use of the Amendments to the Construction Act. Also, now that all of the contract publishing institutions have amended the various standard forms of construction contracts to comply with the new Act, Roland Finch of the C &L team gives an overview of payments under the new Act identifying important watch points. Adjudication was the other area that was amended and the introduction of oral and partly written contracts was probably the most significant change to the Act, Koko Udom takes a look at the journey leading to the admission of oral and partly written contracts and offers practical advice as the industry settles into the new era. We also consider what 2013 might offer in relation to the new Act and point readers in the direction of some useful resources from the NBS.
