Our team of surveyors, property tax consultants and lawyers advise on the entire spectrum of construction services. Our clients include many of the major housebuilders, local authorities, universities, major developers and landowners, as well as employers not directly involved in construction. We also act for a wide range of those delivering construction projects including major national and regional contractors, subcontractors and professional consultants.

Development of property and built assets

The construction landscape presents significant challenges, but there are also great opportunities to be found. Our specialist advisers provide strategic guidance to clients, often acting as an integral part of their team and advising on the entire spectrum of construction and engineering work.

Our combination of lawyers alongside surveyors, project managers and tax consultants, means that we are able to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for all your construction and property needs. Whether it be drafting bespoke documents for national developers, acting as Programme Officers for public inquiries, advising site owners on procurement of construction projects, or advising main contractors on the negotiation of contracts, we partner with our clients to achieve their commercial goals.

Managing projects and property

Construction projects are complex, fast-paced and unique, with different stakeholders, priorities and goals. We help our clients make sure their projects run smoothly from start to finish. We seek to establish, prioritise and deliver on project goals and commercial objectives. 

And if things go wrong, we are there to support. Construction disputes can be costly and their successful resolution is crucial to completing projects on time and to budget. We are experts in all forms of dispute resolution including litigation and alternative dispute resolution methods. We bring and defend claims in all types of construction, engineering, and technical disputes, while our reporting and expert witness services have extensive experience in delivering both written and oral evidence in pre-action advice in an effort to avoid formal contentious construction proceedings. 

Financial matters and monetising property

For the success of any construction project, you need to have accurate cost information, communicated clearly in a straight-talking way. Ineffective construction cost management can easily lead to spiralling construction costs which could jeopardise the return on investment of the whole project. 

Our expert team advise on construction cost management throughout a project, from inception all the way through to practical completion and beyond. We are also experienced in supporting funder clients on transactions, protecting their interests in developments not under their direct control.

Our tax specialists are able to maximise returns on construction projects, including via tax depreciation analysis to identify those parts of construction projects that attract depreciation at accelerated rates for companies investing in properties outside of the UK.
