CONSTRUCTION LAWConstructions require careful planning and a large number of considerations in order to prevent unnecessary disputes and costs. Construction works are usually carried out according to standard agreements provided by the organisations of the industry, such as the general provisions named AB 04, ABT 06 and ABS 09, but these provisions should be supplemented by a contract designated for the specific conditions of the contractual relationship in question. Construction works typically also include the Planning and Building Act and environmental issues to be considered.
A dispute may be inevitable when the parties fail to agree. The dispute is normally technically complicated and carries both risks and opportunities for a party. To succeed in a construction dispute it is important to master the construction law and the technical issues of the dispute, as well as understand and have experience of procedural law.
