Assignment Brief and Guidance Unit 5 Legal & Statutory Responsibilities in Construction

You have recently been employed as an Assistant Project Manager for a contractor. The company has a long track record in the construction of commercial and residential projects for developer clients. A new Managing Director has been appointed and has a strategy to move the company into development. This will mean that the company will be involved in the process of procuring property, developing projects, construction and then sale of the finished asset.

You have been asked to undertake research and deliver a presentation on the statutory and legal processes involved in construction and development, in order to support other parts of the company to understand some of the responsibilities that will become a part of the project process. The Managing Director asks that your presentation cover the following areas:

● Planning – In this area, there is a need to explain the legislation and related agencies that are involved in the planning process. This should also explain how planning decisions are made; including the overall process, appeals and monitoring. Based on this, you will be able to analyse the role of planning and planning agencies in the development of land and buildings.

● Building Regulations – With regard to building regulations/building control, explain the legislation, agencies, and process of obtaining building regulation approval, appeals and monitoring of the process; with particular emphasis on the legislation related residential and commercial buildings. In addition, you should evaluate the impact of planning and building regulations on the development of land and buildings.

● Safety & Liability – Discuss how the law of trespass and nuisance relate to construction; as well as how the laws associated with liability (both occupier and various) apply in construction. Using an example project of your choice, you should design and present a detailed plan for how the company might manage the legal impacts of a large urban project.

● Contracts, Sales & Lease – As the company plans to move into development, which will involve the sale or lease of land/buildings, you should include an analysis of how land law has evolved and the role of contract law in terms of the purchase and sale of property. In addition, the team will need to understand how landlord and tenant law is used in the management of property. All of these legal matters need to be evaluated in relation to the control and disposal of property, this can be further assessed by using an example of a large-scale urban project.

Your presentation should be no more than 10-minutes. You will record an audio file of your presentation. You should also provide your audience with access to your slides by uploading them to Canvas, that they can use to take notes and review following the presentation. Each power point slide should include sufficient detail covering the evidence required in the notes section.

To support the presentation and allow the managing director to understand the issues in greater depth, you are asked to compile a research file that includes the data, references and your notes used in compiling the material included in the presentation. To facilitate ease of reading, the research file should follow the same structure as the presentation.

Please ensure that all references use WSC Harvard citation, so that it is clear where the source material derives. (See Library resources Citethemright )
