The CMS Construction Team invites you to Construction Focus 2021, our annual review of all things construction.
The Scottish construction industry has seen many changes over the past year: numerous reported cases, updates to NEC4 standard form contracts, commercial factors, Scottish Government involvement in the industry and changes to the market in the main arising out of COVID-19.
In this session, we will take a look back over the last year to consider the market trends we have seen developing and review key cases coming out from the Courts on issues including interpretation of delay damages, prescription and black holes of loss. Looking forward, we will consider the legal implications of the lasting effects of COVID-19 on the industry with increasing focus on technology on and off site, and to the issues we anticipate arising for the construction industry during 2021 and beyond.
