IBB (Iliffes Booth Bennett) fields a team of 'extremely well-qualified, very professional, highly knowledgeable and courteous' construction specialists who provide 'exceptional advice and outstanding value for money'. Clients include major housebuilders, contractors and mixed-use developers on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious construction matters, with notable strength in commercial real estate and the engineering sector. On the contentious front, practice head Paul Brampton ('very formidable and clear thinking') acted for O'Loughlin Leisure in a dispute concerning construction cost overruns, allocation of sale proceeds, and alleged defects brought against the development company, with which the client entered into a joint venture agreement to sell and develop leisure facilities in South London into apartments and commercial premises. Non-contentious highlights included advising Heathrow Top on the conversion and extension of an existing office building in Heathrow to deliver a 244-bedroom Marriott hotel, and assisting with Aviva Insurance on the redevelopment of St Helen's Square in the City of London, the third largest open space in the City. Steven Hayward has wide-ranging expertise in contentious and non-contentious construction matters and is recommended alongside consultant Ross Humphries.
