Henry Boot Construction Ltd v Alstom Combined Cycles Ltd (No. 2)
Citation: 101 Con LR 52 CA
Nature of case:
This is a case considering the time at which the civil engineering main contractor’s right to payment arose in a power station project in North Wales and whether (under ICE 6th) the issue of a certificate is a condition precedent to payment. The right to claim interest on a sum which should have been certified becomes statute-barred six years after accrual of the right.
