Main Areas Of Practice

The team has developed a strong reputation in acting for both private and public sector organisations in non-contentious construction contract matters, including:

Drafting and negotiating construction contracts

Working with purchasers and suppliers of construction services, our expert construction and engineering lawyers are experienced in the drafting and negotiation of building contracts. The team has a well-established expertise across a number of industry sectors including residential and commercial development, retail and leisure, energy (including tidal power), health, local and national government, banking and education.

Ongoing management and support

Our Construction and Engineering team is especially valued for its close working partnerships with our clients. Often seen as an extension to clients' own teams, (whether through secondments or otherwise), our construction and engineering lawyers provide ongoing support and advice, pre-empting future issues and helping to offset the risks often associated with building projects.

Our Clients

We act for developers, contractors and sub-contractors at every stage of the construction process. Our expert lawyers have worked with construction professionals across many sectors including property development (commercial and residential), energy, government, education, leisure and retail, housing, and banking and finance.


We acted for the developer of an anaerobic digestion plant in which food and agricultural waste is turned into a methane rich biogas. Blake Morgan advised on all funding issues, construction contracts and all commercial and tax issues for the generation and supply of methane gas to fuel electricity generators to feed into the National Grid, powering up to 1300 homes. Heat is recovered in the CHP and recycled back into the process and nutrients are recovered and used as fertiliser.

Advising Cardiff City Council on the third iteration of the South East and Mid Wales Collaborative Construction Framework (SEWSCAP3). This is a four-year framework agreement used by a number of participating authorities and public sector organisations in Wales in order to appoint pre-qualified and suitably experienced contractors to deliver the construction of both new and refurbished schools and other public buildings.

Working with the procurement team at Transport for Wales on the preparation of construction contracts for the Infrastructure Delivery Partners for the Wales and Borders Rail Service and South Wales Metro. This Welsh Government funded project is due to deliver electrification and vast improvements to Wales' rail network; a high profile project. 

Advising Southern Water through a critical transition period between existing and new framework contracts with its development partners. The team is advising on the terms of multiple contracts as part of this exercise, as well as providing other related services, working with the client's in-house team, partly via secondment.
