*CIP Properties (AIPT) Ltd v Galliford Try Infrastructure Ltd and others

Costs – Order for costs. The proceedings concerned a claim by assignees in respect of alleged defects at a large development on the site of the former children's hospital. Issues arose as to whether it was appropriate for the court at a case management conference to grant a 'window' of three or four months whilst the parties engaged in alternative dispute resolution and whether the Technology and Construction Court had discretion to order the production of costs budgets in the case. The court declined to order a window of four months prior to disclosure in the case and, further, held that it had a complete discretion to decide whether costs budgets should be filed and exchanged.
