Located on the outskirts of London’s 2012 Olympic site the project delivered 132 mixed tenure flats in three separate blocks. The scheme formed part of larger development and was procured via a development agreement.
BPP negotiated the contract conditions and cost with the developer, and prepared the employer’s requirements to ensure they complied with L&Qs needs.
The developer’s performance in completing the works was delayed and the issue was escalated. BPP discussed this with L&Q and agreed on the appropriate response, e.g. a director of the developer was invited to attend the meetings.
One of BPP’s Senior Partners, Martin Walmsley worked with Kevin Frost an Associate of the Practice in the negotiations with the developer and attended the high level meetings with senior members of L&Q.
BPP played a significant role in reducing the client’s exposure to loss and expense and extension of time claims through an active site presence and informed negotiations. The comprehensive set of development agreement documents drafted by BPP has proved to be key in securing L&Q position on the contract.
