Construction and Engineering


Transactional Construction

The financial margins in property development, and in particular the construction industry, mean that managing and resolving both contractual and legal issues are a necessity.

At Jacksons, our construction and engineering team has a wealth of industry experience and can offer you sound legal advice from project conception to completion.  We provide property support in all aspects of property transactional work which have a construction slant such as agreements for lease, development funding agreements, and development finance, licenses to alter or due diligence and pre-contract construction inquiries when purchasers/tenants are buying/letting a property with the benefit of construction warranties.

We aim to help you complete your project on time, and within budget, whilst minimizing risk and exposure to potential disputes from the outset.

We can negotiate and/or advise on terms across the various industry standard contracts as well as specialist transactional construction advice. We can also produce contracts to accommodate a project or client-specific risk profile.

We are happy to meet you on-site or speak to you on the telephone to guide you through the practical application of the contract terms, manage the industry’s unique payment mechanisms, and advise you on how to avoid disputes and additional costs.

We advise developers, contractors, local authorities, investors, and funders from inception to completion and beyond, through the operational lifecycle of an asset.

The range of services our transactional team can offer includes the following:

  • Bonds, guarantees, and sureties
  • Collateral warranties
  • Construction Insurance
  • Consultant’s professional appointment contracts
  • Consultant warranties
  • Drafting and advising on bespoke industry contracts
  • Drafting and advising on standard form construction contracts
  • Novation and assignment

If you need advice on any of the areas above, please contact Rebecca Dawson

A big thank you very much for your consistency throughout this difficult construction dispute. Your hard work, friendliness and professional ‘spot on’ approach to problems faced exceeded my expectations. Until my dealings with Jacksons Law my faith in the legal industry had diminished over the years, gladly now its restored, again a big thank you.
