What does the Construction Update webinar cover?

The webinar begins with a construction industry update from Alastair and an assessment of the guidance provided by the government. He reflects on how construction sites reacted to the Coronavirus lockdown and highlights some of the issues faced with new best working practice, as well as the challenges some companies face in obtaining wet ink signatures on contracts.

This was followed by a talk from Heidi, who discussed the impact that Coronavirus has had on contractual relationships in the construction industry and outlined instances of when force majeure and frustration can be applied to contracts, using case studies to highlight whether or not a pandemic falls under either of the two categories.

Advice for construction employers

The session was rounded off with a Q&A session, which covered some individual queries on the CDN regulations and the new coronavirus restrictions on sites.
