Infrastructure, projects and construction

Anderson Lloyd has a high calibre team that has advised on construction and infrastructure projects throughout the world.  This provides a wealth of experience across varied sectors and projects, ranging from simple construction contracts for residential homes to complex project financed transactions for processing plants.  Our team understands, from our experience on both sides of the table, the technical and commercial issues that each project will face.  We seek to support our clients to achieve pragmatic and commercial solutions, working constructively and collaboratively with them.

In addition to construction experience and expertise, Anderson Lloyd has market-leading practices in project financed projects (particularly public-private-partnerships) and irrigation schemes.


Anderson Lloyd’s construction law team provides strategic and commercially focused guidance at all stages of the construction cycle.

We have significant experience advising on procurement strategies, design, engineering and consultancy agreements, and a broad range of construction contracts, including all of the industry standard forms.  With experience gained in construction projects in New Zealand and over 30 countries, our team can help optimise construction solutions and identify problems before they arise.

Where disputes do arise, our experienced dispute resolution team helps our clients to resolve the situation efficiently, whether through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or adjudication.

We advise infrastructure, industrial, institutional landlord, and property development clients on a wide range of construction matters.  Our recent projects include a major New Zealand wind farm, irrigation scheme projects, and a number of major residential housing developments.

Project financed projects including public private partnerships

Anderson Lloyd leads the market in advising the private sector on successful public-private partnership (PPP) projects in New Zealand.  So far, our team has advised sponsors or lenders on the successful bids for all of the New Zealand PPP projects, including schools, roads and prisons PPP projects as well as the social housing transfer in Tauranga.  Our team also has a wealth of experience gained in advising on PPP projects in a broad range of sectors in the United Kingdom, Australia, the Middle East and Asia.

We provide practical, solutions-focused advice to our clients, working closely with them to help deliver a winning bid and a successful PPP project. Our team understands the requirements of our clients and the demands of bidding for PPP projects, and we provide support throughout the whole process.
