Our expert team help clients manage costs and time risks on construction and development projects and now you can meet them again at our next live ‘On Site’ webinar event.

The UK government has just published its draft Building Safety Bill introducing the most significant building safety reforms since 1945 that will shortly impact everyone involved in the development, construction, design and management of all buildings. Hundreds of buildings have been identified with unsafe cladding with building owners and residents facing substantial repair costs.

Find out all you need to know about these wide-ranging measures and what you must do to prepare at our ‘Summer Construction and Development Legal Briefing’.

WFW’s Rebecca Williams, Partner and Co-Head of our Dispute Resolution Group will moderate the below panel, discussing the following topics:

  • Bart Kavanagh, Technical Director and Paul Jolly, Associate Technical Director, HKA
    Topic – ‘Rainscreen Cladding – Risk, Regulation and Responsibility’
  • Barry Hembling, Partner, Real Estate Group, WFW
    Topic – ‘Golden Thread: New H&S duties for developers, consultants, contractors and residents’
  • Dev Desai, Partner, Dispute Resolution Group, WFW
    Topic – ‘Landlord or Tenant: Who Is Responsible?’
  • Ryland Ash, Partner, Dispute Resolution Group, WFW
    Topic – ‘Cladding Caselaw Update’

This webinar is for building owners and residents and anyone with an interest in construction and development (including developer, contractor, consultant or funder) in any asset class, and who is looking to manage risks from contract placement, advice on live projects or dispute avoidance. Although focussed on the UK market, the legal principles discussed may be of interest to projects in any jurisdiction.
