Construction Subcontractor Workshop

The Event

Construction projects are known for their intricate nature, involving technical, logistical, and financial complexities. This often leads to frequent disputes, especially in construction contracts.

In the United Kingdom, disputes in the construction sector averaged a staggering £27.7m in 2020, with a significant 76% involving contractor-subcontractor relationships. The primary cause, as highlighted by Gateley, is the presence of onerous clauses that subcontractors often overlook.

Many subcontractors lack resources for legal support, making them vulnerable to unfavourable contract terms.

Objective of the Workshop:

Comprehensive Understanding: Construction subcontractors will have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of contractual clauses that warrant concern within construction contracts. Legal and Commercial experts will provide detailed insights into the implications and potential liabilities associated with these clauses.

Exploration of AI Integration: The workshop will delve into the potential integration of AI technology to support subcontractors in their contract reviews. This exploration aims to empower subcontractors in reducing the risk of substantial financial claims against them through advanced contract reviewer technology.
