Event description

Description

SBCC’s 2019 Annual Conference will provide a definitive guide to the latest developments in building
contracts and construction law in Scotland. It is suitable for all construction industry professionals,
including Architects, Engineers, Solicitors, Chartered Surveyors and Contractors in both the private and
public sectors. This year we will feature some of the challenging financial and economic issues affecting
our industry and initiatives to help address them and protect cash flow.

The outstanding speakers include Lisa Cattanach (Chair SBCC and Construction Dispute Resolution), Donald Canavan (Hurd Rolland), Andrew Cooper (Transport for Scotland), Louise Lado-Byrnes, Ann O’Connell (BTO Solicitors), Kirsti Olson (Dentons), John Riches (Henry Cooper Consultants), Greg Walker (Scottish Government) and Karyn Watt (Anderson Strathern), with others to be announced shortly.

We are delighted that Derek Mackay, Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work will deliver a video address for delegates in which he will focus on the findings of the Scottish Government Report on Economy, Energy and Fair Work. We will take an in-depth look at Project Bank Accounts, as well as looking at latent defects from the viewpoints of an architect, a contractor and an insurer. The programme also includes invaluable updates on SBCC contracts, legal issues affecting the industry, the Integrated project insurance scheme and retentions.

We are pleased to advise that we have been able to hold delegates fees at the same rates as last year. The delegate fee includes access to all sessions, lunch and tea/coffee during refreshment breaks.

Full delegate fee: £180 (VAT included)
Student / Retired: £48 (VAT included. Limited number available)
