Clients / Design Teams – Are you ready for the Construction Contracts Act 2013?

The effects of the Construction Contracts Act 2013 are far reaching, encompassing not only Main Contracts, sub contracts and sub sub-contracts, both also Professional Services Contracts as outlined under S1(2) of the 2013 Act. Such Professional Service Contracts can be with the Employer or Client, they may be with a Main Contractor or Sub-Contractor, or they may even be Consultant to Sub-Consultant. The crucial effect of the 2013 Act, is that almost any party can refer a payment dispute or be the subject of a payment dispute referral, which means that Client’s and Professional Service Providers, now, and more than ever, need to be extremely aware of the Conditions of Contract upon which they engage.

Attached is a flyer in relation to a event which is being run by both the CIArb & RIAI which will no doubt assist in this regard.
