CLC document on claims and disputes in construction
12 January 2021
The Construction leadership Council, of which ECA is a key member, has published a summary of its recent questionnaire and a series of interviews with a range of leading industry professionals in the field of construction claims and disputes and contracting parties in the supply chain.
As the pandemic continues and a further lockdown is now in place, there remains a real concern that parties to construction contracts will become embroiled in costly and long-running disputes over the effects of COVID-19 on projects.
A snapshot of current thoughts and perceptions is published in the summary note here.
The CLC continues to monitor the situation with respect to the potential for widespread disputes and urges all parties to act fairly and responsibly to preserve the competence, capability and capacity within industry to meet the challenges of 2021.
