This practical, user-friendly textbook starts at the beginning of construction projects and makes important connections between stages, accompanied by helpful illustrations and real-life industry examples. Contracts and agreements underpin the whole construction industry, and yet many graduates and young professionals do not realise just how important they are. Misunderstandings and mistakes can be extremely expensive and cause considerable delay. The textbook provides extensive explanation of the most commonly used forms of contract, an introduction to the general principles of contracts, and the implications of contract law and negligence as they affect the construction professional.

 Written by an author with extensive previous industry experience before he became a lecturer, this text is aimed at students of Contract Management/Procedures at both undergraduate and postgraduate level on both Civil Engineering and Construction courses.  It is also helpful for starting professionals.

Review:

Reviews for 1st Edition from amazon.co.uk:

'There are many books available that cover the subject of construction contracts, however most are very difficult to read and often do not explain things in clear terms. At last we have a book that provides some clarity, in what can often been a very dry and uninteresting subject. The book is well structured and very well written, giving plenty of illustrations and industry based examples to explain and emphasise key points. This is a must for practitioners and students alike.'

'This is an ideal purchase for anyone tackling the daunting subject of construction contracts. The book is written in an incredibly reader friendly manner - conversational yet highly informative. The illustrations are clear and well annotated, and the industry examples provide an invaluable real-life connection. It it clear that the author, Geoff Powell, has had a great deal of industry experience. Thanks to him for passing it on!'
