The decision of the supreme court on an offshore wind farm in MT Højgaard v E.On (3 August 2017) has thrown open again the debate on Fitness for Purpose obligations – which has huge relevance not only for lawyers but also for the engineering community who have to take bidding and delivery risks on these complicated projects.

Although Fitness for Purpose obligations are nothing new in Engineering and Construction world, how well are these obligations and implications actually understood technically and contractually– and how could this decision change this understanding?

Join Kingsfield Consulting and ECI at this day-long workshop to:

  • Consider Fitness for Purpose obligations from a technical, contractual, and practical project delivery perspective, in the light of this judgement
  • Understand the implications of risks and liabilities before making contractual commitments

Who should attend?
