This new text is a practical and reader-friendly approach for students and new professionals in Civil Engineering and the Built Environment, starting at the very beginning of construction projects and making important connections between stages. The text is full of helpful illustrations and real-life industry examples. Includes: • Extensive explanation of two of the most commonly used forms of contract, NEC3 ECC and JCT SBC05 • General principles of contracts; concepts such as the importance of time and programmes, and payment and pricing mechanisms; processes such as tendering; and the importance of stakeholders • An introduction to contract law and negligence as they affect the construction professional • The EU Procurement Directive and framework agreements • Site investigation and how to carry one out • The CDM regulations and safety

The JCT standard forms of building contract require a thorough understanding of their procedural requirements, as well as their legal implications. They require both the contractor and the architect, on behalf of the employer, to send a wide range of notices and letters if each party is to protect its legitimate interests. The main contract forms are also supported by complex sub-contract documentation. Therefore, it is not surprising that when this book of specimen letters, notices and forms was first published, it was widely welcomed by the construction industry. The book provides examples of documentation likely to be required for a contract under the following JCT forms: ? the Standard Form of Building Contract ? the Intermediate Form of Building Contract ? the Agreement for Minor Building Works ? the Standard Form of Building Contract With Contractor's Design It includes a commentary on the practical implications of the various documents and highlights the points to be watched. The new edition takes into account the wide range of amendments to the latest editions of the standard forms following the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and in particular, the new payment and adjudication provisions. For the first time it features documentation for use with the JCT design and build form.
