This article considers the effect of changes introduced in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) for small-scale and domestic projects. Generally the requirements of CDM 2015 do not change with the scale of the project if there is likely to be more than one contractor; however, there are some changes if a single contractor will undertake the work.

<h4>Managing risk and contractual liability. Part 11: Net contribution and limitations of liability</h4>

Managing risk and contractual liability. Part 11: Net contribution and limitations of liability

This month's article from Griffiths & Armour explains the benefits of net contribution clauses (NCCs) and clauses which limit an engineer's liability. The intention behind an NCC is for an engineer’s liability in a multi-party dispute to be limited to an equitable proportion of any losses. It seeks to modify the effects of joint and several liability, a principle which otherwise applies in circumstances where more than one party is liable to the same claimant for the same loss.
