Covid-19 and construction: Confronting the challenges

Construction lawyers Stuart Pemble and Alison Garrett, a partner and senior legal adviser respectively at Mills & Reeve, discuss the issues being raised by their clients during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pemble and Garrett address key topics including delays, force majeure, practical health and safety issues on sites, the difficulties raised for urgent cladding replacement works, and the need for collaboration in the industry to weather tough times ahead.

In addition, they assess the potentially bleak financial outlook for construction - but sound a note of optimism, in the hope that infrastructure spending forms part of the government's plan to rebuild the economy.
