There has been a widespread welcome for the signing of the Construction Contracts Act. Hot on the heels of this, a special CIF seminar, entitled: ‘The Construction Contracts Act Explained’ took place which featured special presentations by Anthony Hussey of Hussey Fraser Solicitors. Anthony presented overviews on two central elements of the seminar: “Provisions Concerning Payment & Suspension” and “Provisions Relating to Adjudication”. These were followed by a lively question and answers session. The CIF has welcomed the Construction Contracts Act as critical to Industry’s long-term growth.
“This Bill has become law against the odds,” said Senator Feargal Quinn.  “This legislation has taken almost six years to become law. I initiated many Bills during my time in the Seanad and to see this one become law just as my time as a Senator is coming to an end is very fitting.”
