LUPC is running a series of Legal Webinars being delivered by law firms on the LUPC Legal Services framework agreement, open to members of HEPCW, LUPC, NEUPC, NWUPC and SUPC. Taking place every two months, the webinars will cover a hot topic across the relevant framework lots; Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Human Resources and One Stop Shop.

The first one, delivered by Bevan Brittan, takes place on Tuesday 13 September from 10.00-11.00.

With UK inflation hitting a 40-year high and the cost of raw building materials in the UK expected to more than treble in 2022*, many higher education institutions are wondering how it will impact their building and construction plans and how their contracts can protect them against these cost pressures.

Niamh Batterton, Legal Director in Bevan Brittan's Commercial & Infrastructure Team, will cover:
  • What practical steps can legal and commercial teams take to mitigate against rising construction costs?
  • What considerations should you take into account if you are planning a future project?
  • What happens if a contractor requests an increase in the contract price during a current project?
  • What elements of your construction contract should you review/amend to deal with inflation and increased costs?

* Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) Materials Cost Index


Free and open to SUPC, HEPCW, LUPC, NEUPC and NWUPC member organisations and relevant for staff in procurement, estates, and in-house legal departments.
