Construction, Engineering and Infrastructure Projects

 

We are one of the leading construction, engineering and infrastructure projects practice groups in Singapore and the region. Our experience and expertise extend to both front-end and dispute resolution work. Our clients include many established local and international owners, developers, contractors and consultants. The head of our Practice Group was recommended in Legal 500's Asia Pacific 2015.

On the front-end, our lawyers have advised on many prominent projects in Singapore, including the Singapore Management University Campus, the New National Library Building, One Marina Boulevard and the Singapore Flyer. We have also been involved in the development of one of the largest and most prominent projects in Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort. The participants in this project include leading real estate developers, world renowned consultants and international contractors involving a myriad of procurement methods.

Apart from such commercial and public projects, our lawyers have advised developers in many of their residential projects in Singapore and abroad like China and Vietnam. In addition, we have advised international owners and contractors in the procurement of their plant projects in Singapore, in particular on Jurong Island.

In terms of dispute work, we have acted as counsel in domestic and international arbitrations and litigation between owners, contractors and consultants. These matters relate to disputes on cost and time claims, defects, enforcement of warranties, indemnities and bonds and other common construction disputes and include international arbitrations arising out of the oil and gas industry that in recent times have chosen Singapore as a forum for arbitration.
