Ramboll Whitbybird to sue Shepherd Construction over payment row

Structural engineer Ramboll Whitbybird has launched a legal battle against Shepherd Construction following a row over payment.

Ramboll Whitbybird claims it is owed in excess of ВЈ136,000 for services it provided to Shepherd during the demolition and construction of Building 101, in the Cambridge Science Park in Cambridge.

The firm alleged in a writ lodged at the Technology and Construction Court that other than two instalments which it had received from Shepherd following solicitors' letters and the threat of an adjudication, it has not been paid since July 2007.

Ramboll Whitbybird is now suing Shepherd Construction for breach of contract.

Shepherd is contesting the action.
