Details :

The speaker will discuss two landmark construction cases in recent years: The first is Walter Lily & Co Ltd v Mackay & Anor, and the second is Maeda Corporation & Others v Government of the Hong Kong SAR. Whilst Walter Lily has generally confirmed the application of old principles rather than creating new ones, it would be useful to understand the Court’s view in applying such principles in particular those relating to concurrent delay. The Maeda case is important its own right which relates to the principles involved in assessing a new rate under the Hong Kong Government form of contract. Interesting questions arise as to the relevance of the build-up rate and the transfer of other costs. These are issues of significant interest to practitioners in the industry including employers, consultants and contractors alike.
