Construction Law

Construction law also known as engineering or built environment law, is a vast area of the law dealing with the physical built environment. This includes all aspects of a construction life cycle, such as contractual issues and disputes on time delays and extension of times, force majeure and all risks associated with the project.

It includes fields such as contract law, commercial law, planning law, employment law, delict, procurement and tendering, guarantees and security, environmental and occupational law. Construction law affects many participants  and industry role players in the construction industry, including financial institutions, surveyors, quantity surveyors, architects, builders, engineers, construction contractors and sub-contractors, construction employers, and planners.

This field is also known for its unique emphasis on standard form contracts such as the JBCC, FIDIC, NEC and GCC suite of contracts. With the economic impacts of Covid and the demand for swift cash flow – there are also increasing developments in the area of construction adjudication.
