Architectural practice David Marks Julia Barfield will press ahead with legal proceedings against exhibition consultancy Brennan & Whalley, after a meeting between the two designers and client British Nuclear Fuels failed to take place last month.
The practice joined forces with Brennan & Whalley (DW 8 September) to issue a summary judgement against BNFL, which owes 50 000 to the consultancy.
This figure includes 8000 owed to David Marks Julia Barfield, which Brennan & Whalley sub-contracted to work on BNFL’s 5m Sellafield centre (DW 16 June).
“BNFL promised us a meeting by the end of September to sort out why we haven’t been paid, which Brennan & Whalley was organising,” says practice partner David Marks. “It hasn’t materialised, and we have no choice now but to take legal action.”
Brennan & Whalley director Jean Brennan plans to “see what happens. I hope there’ll be a meeting soon,” he adds.
BNFL refuses to comment about the matter.
