12 February 2013

  • what notices will have to be given before payments are made
  • the effect of not giving a notice, and particularly the default payment mechanism
  • when can the works or an architect's professional services be suspended for non-payment, and the procedure involved?
  • adjudication – how may it be used to reinforce the New Construction Act
