DAHL guarantees you professional advice in relation to all construction contract issues. We help at every stage, from project to agreements and contracts to ongoing sparring during the construction as well as final court or arbitration proceedings.
In the construction sector it is important to be familiar with and knowledgeable about construction contract law and conditions. As an early-stage project sparring partner we can create value here and now. We can react swiftly and efficiently when challenges arise and we make a targeted effort to prevent a challenge from growing into a prolonged and expensive conflict.
We provide advice all the way from idea to completion and commissioning of the constructed building e.g. on:
- Choice of contract type
- Preparation and negotiation of construction contracts, including turnkey contracts, main contracts, subcontracts and individual trade contracts
- Partnering agreements
- Consultancy agreements
- Consortium agreements and joint venture agreements
- Supplier agreements
- Agreements under general terms and conditions of building and construction (ABR 89 and ABR 18, AB 92 and AB 18, AB Consumer, ABT 93 and ABT 18 and FIDIC)
Our team of contract specialists have extensive knowledge of the new terms and conditions for construction which come into effect from 2019. Among other measures we have written an e-book which can give you an insight into the most significant changes in the standard terms and conditions (AB, ABR and ABT) Download the e-book here.
We are familiar with public authority processes and provide advice on other public regulations, including procurement, both for contracting clients and tenderers. Read more about tenders and public procurement.
We also help to secure guarantees, assignments and other forms of security. And we help to secure financing of the construction contract or building project.
