Combustibility & Liability – Who pays for the high rise fix?
We are delighted to be partnering with Clyde&Co to deliver this webinar.
Taking place on Wednesday 7th September 2022, at 1pm, this hour long session will discuss the recent judgement of Martlet Homes Ltd v Mulalley & Co Ltd  EWHC 1813 (TCC) – The first substantive decision from the Court relating to cladding and fire safety.
In a decision that will be of significant interest to the industry, the Court held that a contactor, which had installed a combustible insulated EPS render system (StoTherm Classic) under a design and build contract between 2005 and 2008, was liable for the costs of a full-scale replacement of the system, together with costs pertaining to the ‘waking watch’ whilst it was remediated. The Court found that a repair of the system would not have been sufficient.
The judgment offers a first look into how the Courts are viewing these types of issues in combustible cladding cases. Given the serious and potentially costly implications of this judgment for the industry, we will be co-hosting this remote webinar on 7th September 2022 at 13:00 to discuss the judgment and the practical implications for contractors and developers going forward.
