RIBA is working with NBS to undertake a Contracts and Law Survey. The UK construction industry is often adversarial, and successful projects rely on clear, timely and proportionate contracting arrangements. As we all face on-going Covid challenges, this is as true now as ever before.
The first NBS Construction Contracts and Law Survey was conducted back in 2012 and the 2022 survey will build on the findings of previous surveys.
The survey is open to all construction professionals to share their legal and contractual experiences over the last 12 months and is designed to be the most wide-ranging independent review of contractual and legal issues from across the industry with the aim to:
- provide an accurate picture of contracting practice in the UK that will highlight how improvements can be made
- help companies contextualise their approach to contracting within the wider industry; and
- support policy positions/decisions with facts.
The closing date for the survey is 29 April 2022 and the results will be published later this year.
