Charities considering a construction or re-development project often are unprepared for what they are getting themselves into.

Understanding and balancing the many demands both on time and finance are considerable and that is before the likely risks and compliance issues are considered.

This new virtual classroom seminar is aimed at those who advise charities on construction projects and will highlight the important areas to consider before undertaking a construction or re-development project.

Presented by expert speaker Paul Martin, who has over 40 years of experience in guiding charities in this area, this session will feature a case study of a current project and will provide useful hints and tips making it ideal for charity lawyers. It will also be of interest to accountants, charity trustees and managers.
