Construction Act Matters

The Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 as amended by The Local Democracy Development and Construction Act 2009

The Payment Provisions of The ‘Construction Act’ relayed in a practical format

This important law governs all contracts that are defined as "construction operations" and legislates industry practice in respect to two issues, namely: Adjudication and Payment. The original Act was amended by the provisions of Part 8 of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009, which now apply  to all regulated contracts executed after the 1st October 2011. ‘The Act’ affects the majority of construction contracts irrespective of whether they are executed orally, partially orally  or totally in writing.

A consolidated version of the Act and it's accompanying provisions (termed 'The Scheme') are available below. As is a paper describing the mechanisms the Act and Scheme describe.
