Add to CPD Planner


From the Chair

It is a challenging time for the construction industry. There are high levels of activity in the industry but there have also been some high-profile corporate failures amongst the ranks of the head contractors. Questions have arisen as to procurement methods, the appropriate allocation of risk on projects, and the availability of insurance in the market.

This intensive explores and analyses these issues and recent developments in the law. The intensive will also look to the future, considering the Government’s role in the industry and how things can be done better to ensure successful project outcomes, efficient resolution of disputes and the wellbeing of industry participants.

Please join us to discuss and debate these important matters and to network with your colleagues.

Chair: Andrew Skelton, Capital Chambers, Wellington
