Welcome to Construction and engineering

A successful construction or engineering project calls for clear thinking, commitment and an ability to balance the different demands while keeping a keen focus on getting the job done.

In a similar way, the legal advice required for construction in the public sector needs to fit in seamlessly with the job in hand, be on time and within cost parameters.

Our construction and engineering team combines years of experience across a wide range of projects and developments with a pragmatic, skilled approach which always keeps the end result centre stage.

Committed to achieving our clients’ objectives, we never lose sight of the final goal and work to take down walls rather than build barriers to progress.

As a result, our construction and engineering team’s services are in demand from clients across the public arena, with our advice being sought on both building projects and dispute resolution.

Whatever the assignment – from a major multi-million pound development to a small-scale project agreement – we have the skills and the experience to deliver the job to our clients’ expectations.


And if matters get difficult, our team’s ability to deploy a wide range of dispute resolution techniques ensures we can choose the right tool to get the job done.

Our range of services includes:
