Construction

 


The Construction Sector is constantly evolving and facing new challenges, be it from government policy, global economic factors, supply costs or skills migration. Expert advice and innovative solutions are required to overcome these challenges, unlock deals, mitigate risks and maximise the potential benefits of deals. At Trowers, we work with our clients to understand the challenges that are unique to their businesses.

With one of the largest dedicated construction teams in the UK, together with our internationally based teams, we have the resources and breadth of experience to overcome any obstacles and provide the kind of support our clients need to bring their projects to fruition. Our team of construction experts advise on some of the most complicated and high profile projects; often applying innovative solutions to achieve our client’s objectives. Our clients range from private sector developers to central and local government, contractors, consultants and investors and include some of the most successful and influential organisations in the UK and the Middle East. Experience of acting for both private and public sector clients means that we are able to approach problems with a full understanding of the commercial pressures involved and translate this experience into adding real value to the services we provide.

Our team includes specialists in residential and commercial development, engineering and major projects, asset management and offsite and modern construction methods such as modular procurement. Our in-depth understanding of the markets in which we operate provides our clients with essential and practical support to add real value to their transactions. We have a wealth of experience dealing with the identification, analysis and allocation of construction-related risks relevant to the markets and sectors in which our clients operate. We deliver clear focused advice on the issues that matter and are committed to delivering outstanding client service together with legal and technical excellence.

We are often called upon to participate in governmental and industry body working groups (such as the Housing Forum Working Group on Modern Methods of Construction and Government working groups post Hackitt Review) and help shape industry best practice, for example we are advising the Ministry of Housing on expediting the acceptance of modern methods of construction by warranty insurance providers. We understand that the sector is constantly moving and evolving and we help our clients adapt to such changes. Our ability to offer clients insight and perspective on developments in the markets in which they operate is highly valued by our clients.
