Henry Boot Construction Ltd v Alstom Combined Cycles

Citation: CILL 2276 and BLM Vol 22 No 9 p.1 CA

Nature of case:
This concerns the point at which the contractor’s right to payment arises and whether (in an ICE 6th edition contract) 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.
