The team acted in the Supreme Court case of Bresco Electrical Services Ltd (in Liquidation) v Michael J Lonsdale Ltd  UKSC 25 concerning the rights of insolvent companies to refer disputes arising under construction contracts to adjudication. This was only the second-ever adjudication case before the Supreme Court. This judgment was a landmark for the construction industry and created considerable publicity. The Supreme Court decided there was no incompatibility between the statutory adjudication and insolvency regimes. The judgment is likely to have far-reaching implications given the anticipated increase of insolvencies amongst the construction sector. It also appears to have created a new basis for courts to refuse to summarily enforce adjudicator’s decisions.
The team is advising on the £35m refurbishment of the National Portrait Gallery, London. We have been retained to advise the Gallery in connection with procurement of and then drafting and negotiation all project documents. This is a high-profile project for the Gallery and its first capital project for a century. The project comprises a comprehensive re-display of the collection, a significant refurbishment of the building, the creation of new public spaces, visitor entrance and public forecourt, and a new state of the art Learning Centre. The team is advising the Gallery in connection with the tendering process and selection and appointment of a building contractor.
The team is instructed to draft and negotiate the building contracts and associated project documents in relation to the design and construction of the museum’s new off-site c. 33,000 sq. m storage facility. We also advised in connection with procurement. The plan is to move over 300,000 objects to the £40 million site. The centrepiece will be a new building that will be 300 metres long and 90 metres wide, enough to contain 600 double decker buses. There will also be conservation labs, research facilities and public access to its stores. This is a landmark project for the cultural sector given the size and scale of the facility and the ground-breaking technology required to ensure suitable environmental conditions for valuable exhibits. Our expertise in the cultural and museum sector secured the mandate.
