Construction law

Our lawyers, specialized in construction law, provide advice on all aspects of construction law and assist you in proceedings before the court and the Construction Arbitration Council (“Raad van Arbitrage”).

Construction is a complex process involving multiple stakeholders working together for the realisation of homes, commercial buildings or infrastructure. Making clear arrangements and ensuring compliance are of great importance.

We know the market, know what's going on in the construction industry and think along with you. A practical, solution-oriented approach is our starting point.

Our construction law specialists have the knowledge in all areas of construction law, whether in homes, offices and business premises or in ground, road and hydraulic engineering. We assist both clients (governments, developers, investors) and contractors (contractors’ consultants, architects) with advice and drafting agreements. We are quite familiar with the commonly used regulations and conditions (UAV 1989, UAV 2012, UAV-GC 2005, DNR) and contract forms (sale/contracting agreements, design & build, design & construct, Stabu, RAW, DBFMO, building team agreements). Sometimes a building process is part of a bigger picture, such as development and PPS agreements. At KienhuisHoving we are used to work with different specialist areas, so that we can advise you in all fields.

Sometimes litigation is the designated method. We have quite some experience with litigation in the courts, the Construction Arbitration Council (“Raad van Arbitrage”) and other arbitration institutions. This may include disputes over additional work, delays and defects during or after delivery.
