Navigating Novation & Protecting Design 

This event will cover the common contracts used by large architectural practices and how the role of the architect varies considerably between these contracts. Novation will be a focus as it is being used at an increasing rate with many new large-scale works. There is a need for everyone to understand why Novation is used and what can be done to make this process more positive for architects whilst meeting project outcomes.

They will explain how to work through key contractual aspects identifying what to add into contracts and clauses to be aware of.. Register here.
