The Dorchester Group Ltd trading as The Dorchester Collection v Kier Construction Ltd

Building contract – Judgment. The Technology and Construction Court held that the claimant, The Dorchester Group Ltd, was not entitled to judgment, pursuant to CPR 14.1, on its claim alleging that the defendant company had, contrary to a contract, failed to disclose to Dorchester certain discounts obtained from its mechanical and electrical sub-contractors. There was nothing on the face of the letter relied on by Dorchester that amounted to an admission, within the meaning of CPR 14.1, that it were liable to Dorchester for all undisclosed discounts. The court further made specific disclosure orders in respect of some, but not all categories of documents in respect of which Dorchester sought specific disclosure.
