Seminar Overview 

The Construction Contracts Act 2013 (the Act) was enacted on 29 July 2013. The Act remained in stasis until 13 April 2016 when the signing of the commencement order, by interim Minister for Business and Employment Ged Nash, means the Construction Contracts Act now applies to all construction contracts entered into after 25 July 2016.
The principal function of the Act is to regulate payments under all Irish construction contracts. It does this by:
  • Imposing a requirement that all Irish construction contracts expressly provide for the amounts of all interim and final payments
  • Rendering so-called ‘pay when paid’ clauses ineffective; and 
  • Giving the parties to any construction contract the right to refer any payment disputes to adjudication.

Seminar Aim

The aim of this half-day CPD seminar is to provide practical guidance to Engineers on how the Construction Contracts Act 2013 will affect the day-to-day contract management of all construction contracts entered into after 25 July 2016 - specifically in relation to terms of payment, management of claims/disputes for payment, and adjudication.
