Projects under pressure: is there any escape?
Thursday 12 October (0930 - 1230)
International Construction Projects Committee
This will be an interactive session concerning a project that is in distress due to the development of severely adverse conditions unanticipated by the parties (eg, unexpected price falls or rises and labour shortage epidemic). It will begin with a look at relief that may be available in such circumstances, viewed from both a civil and common law standpoint: suspension, termination, force majeure arguments, and concepts of fairness and equity, including the teoría de la imprevisión, good faith, unjust enrichment and economic equilibrium.
