Construction Nuisance Conference

Hiscox –v- Pinnacle, 11 years on: progress in Construction Operation Regulation

39 Essex Chambers welcomes Will Minting, Partner at Wilks Head & Eve LLP, to discuss progress in Construction Operations Regulation alongside Paul Darling OBE QC and Richard Harwood OBE QC.

Will’s talk explores the ramifications of the most significant Construction Nuisance case since Andreae v Selfridge [CA 1938], and how safeguarding advancements apply to Party Wall etc Act 1996 matters, as well as construction projects conducted outside that jurisdiction.

The seminar is aimed to assist in particularising standard draft documents to specific project circumstances. Will enjoys a reputation for having advised the Royal Household, the French Government and other distinguished clients for many years, and consequently his anecdotes are informative and compelling.

Paul Darling will be addressing the common law of nuisance arising from building operations, including Hiscox v Pinnacle in which he appeared.

Richard Harwood will be considering the planning and environmental controls which may be used to address construction nuisance issues.

Date and Time:

Monday 29th April 6pm-7pm (registration from 5.45pm) followed by refreshments.
