At Browne Jacobson, we thrive on diversity. And the contracts and projects we work on range from complex major infrastructure projects to minor works construction contracts.
Our innovative construction and engineering team offers you a practical and creative approach on every aspect of the contractual process, from contract procurement and supply chain strategy to day-to-day operational issues.
Our national powerhouse reputation underpins our work in projects and contract procurement. The contracts and projects we work on range from complex major infrastructure projects to minor works construction contracts.
We’re known for our skill not only in pure construction and real estate projects but also in a range of other related sectors, including energy and power stations, civil and social infrastructure, manufacturing, transport and logistics, data centres, retail & leisure, hotels, hospitals and education infrastructure.
We believe this wide client-base gives us the expertise to provide sound advice with an in-depth understanding of the documents and issues.
Our approach is practical and focused on making a material, commercial difference. This combines advice on general contractual issues with an understanding of your business needs. We give relevant, focussed advice. In larger construction and engineering projects we assist on wider issues such as contract interfaces, pass-through of responsibilities, and allocation of risk. We also address project-specific concerns in relation to the nature of the works, the site, potential contract risks and how to mitigate these through contract drafting or operational mechanisms.
