Balfour Beatty Regional Construction Ltd v Grove Developments Ltd [2016] EWCA Civ 990

13th Oct 2016

This is an appeal by a building contractor against a decision that there is no entitlement to interim payments in the period after the contractual date for practical completion.

The principal issues are (i) how some rather unusual amendments to the standard form building contract should be construed and (ii) how section 109 of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (“the 1996 Act”) applies in the circumstances of this case.

(Instructed by Pinsent Masons LLP)
