King's video series

In this video series produced by the Centre of Construction Law, the Centre will be looking at the impact that King’s research and new legal frameworks have had across the construction sector.

Major construction and engineering projects the world over face the challenge of bringing multiple consultants, contractors and specialists together to integrate their work, services and supplies. There are great opportunities not only to reduce disputes but also to improve economic and social value through new contract relationships that integrate team members and that embed learning from one project to another.

In response to these challenges, Centre of Construction Law and Dispute Resolution at King’s College London consulted with over 120 organisations and developed the FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract, the first multi-party contract of its kind in the field of construction. The first introductory video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN_QBeg_7Pk . Other videos will be notified each month on David Mosey’s Linkedin and Twitter pages and will explore a range of FAC-1 projects
