It is common to have liquidated damages provision in a construction contract to limit the potential liability of the contractor in case there is a delay to the project. Some liquidated damages provisions are considered unenforceable because they are "penalties". The traditional test is a "genuine pre-estimate of loss" that would be suffered in the event of a delay. However, new case law from the UK raises the question - what is the new test for penalties? This seminar will review and discuss the latest case law concerning liquidated damages provision in construction contracts.
