Contract Dispute

Contract dispute is never an easy issue to solve. Bralsford Brown and Associates Limited have been involved in several cases where the standard of workmanship or the specification of work duties or entities have caused disagreement.

  • Russell Bralsford, senior partner at Bralsford Brown, recently investigated the efficiency and standard of workmanship of a under floor heating system installed in the floor of a large, open windowed, entrance hall area of a modern, new ‘eco-friendly’ private dwelling. The under floor heating system was installed to text book standard yet was found to inadequately heat the whole of the entrance hall area. The installer and the owner of the property were at odds with regards to what was initially set out in the original specification for the system.
  • Dr Robert Brown, senior partner at Bralsford Brown, investigated a dispute between a property owner and an electrical contracting company who the owner contracted to bring the property up to the required standard for electrical certification. The electrical company first tested the property and continued to make remedial works however the owner viewed the work as substandard. By contracting a separate electrical company it was found that the property was still in a substandard electrical state which the original contractors disputed.
  • Dr Robert Brown appeared on the BBC 1 day time television program ‘Don’t get Done get Dom’, the consumer protection program hosted by the celebrity Dominic Littlewood. Dr Brown was asked to investigate a dispute between the owner of an equestrian centre and a major energy supplier who were in dispute over an ‘excessively’ large energy bill. The owner of the equestrian centre refused to pay the bill since they were of the opinion that the electricity energy consumption metre was faulty and indicating erroneous results. Additionally, to add to the dispute, the electrical cables supplying energy to the equestrian complex suddenly disintegrated about the time when the energy meter was ‘read’ by the energy supplier.
