Contract Advisory

Contract Advisory

Whittle & Co helps clients avoid, mitigate and resolve construction claims and disputes. When unanticipated risks and changes lead to schedule delays and additional costs on projects, Whittle & Co can provide assistance at every stage of the construction process.

Everyday Whittle & Co provides expert advice relating to construction contracts. Whittle & Co’s Director, Paul Whittle FRICS, utilises decades of experience and both academic and professional qualifications, to provide efficient and cost effective advice to resolve construction related issues and disputes.

Whittle & Co provide construction contract reviews and reporting to our client’s projects to minimise risk and improve margins. Poorly produced claims or misinformed defences reduce the likelihood of parties settling. The impact of this can be far reaching and resulting formal proceedings can prove costly, time consuming and resource sapping for all concerned.

Whittle & Co work closely with our clients to mitigate risk and achieve the best solution. We analyse the facts to identify where the time and/or money has gone, where and by whom the issues have been created, and perhaps most importantly; the best possible mitigation scenario to recover loss and provide a valid and robust defence against claims of money and/or time.

Whittle & Co provide expert advice in respect to the following: 

  1. Valuing Variations and Change
  2. Extensions of time
  3. Loss and expense
  4. Suspension for non-payment
  5. Termination
  6. Issues in regard to payment notices and pay less notices.

Whittle & Co’s clients include developers, contractors, sub-contractors, architects, surveyors and homeowners.
