From safeguarding the public’s interest, to protecting vulnerable communities, we support the work of public sector organisations.
See some examples of our work with public organisations.
Ledingham Chalmers successfully acted on behalf of an enterprise agency client in relation to issues that arose with a contractor employed to construct infrastructure works for a new campus site.
We assisted the parties in reaching a negotiated resolution. However, the contractor then failed to correct defects in landscaping within the contractual defects period so we are supporting ongoing negotiations to resolve those issues.
Ledingham Chalmers successfully acted on behalf of Highland Hospice via its wholly owned subsidiary HH Design and Build Ltd.
We advised in relation to tendering for a contractor for the procurement of the design and build of a new in patient unit for the facility.
The project was funded through charitable fundraising, which meant it was vital to stay within budget and ensure as much risk as possible lay with the contractor, rather than delay costs being funded by the hospice.
The multi million pound construction project is now ongoing.
Ledingham Chalmers acted on behalf of a national enterprise agency client in connection with the initial stages of the procurement of a new life sciences connected building at the Bio Quarter in Edinburgh: the second phase of research and office space for the bio science sector.
We advised on the procurement of a lead consultant to procure the design of the building.
Subject to a satisfactory business case being made in completion of the design, the next step is to assist in the procurement of the contractor.
Third party rights in construction — can you teach an old dog new tricks? - Will new third party rights legislation change contracts in the construction sector? Or will it be better the devil you know with collateral warranties remaining the preferred option?
