Most medium to large construction contracts include a claim forextra payment for variations or disruption to the programme. Whilstthe causes of the claim are often well documented, what can andcannot be included in the payment is often misunderstood and thecalculation of quantum consequently becomes vague and poorlysubstantiated.

Thoroughly updated over the previous edition, reflectingpertinent Court decisions on damages and the duty to mitigate, thenew edition covers new provisions of the revised JCT 2005 contractsand the 2005 New Engineering Contract. There is substantialadditional material on issues arising from time and delay analysisand the financial consequences of changes to time – issuesthat regularly cause real problems in the evaluation of quantum forconstruction claims.

Most current books on the subject concentrate on theestablishment of liability and the requirements of individualstandard forms of contract. This book, however, concentrates on thequantification of claims after liability has been established,regardless of the form of contract used, and sets out theprinciples and methods that should be reflected in the evaluationof claim quantum and the standard of substantiation required. Itwill therefore appeal to those working with both building andengineering contracts.

Book Description:

Most medium to large construction contracts include a claim for extra payment for variations and changes or for disruption to the programme. A number of books address the legal and contractual basis for such claims, but few if any show how such claims should be quantified. This book will provide a detailed guide to evaluating such claims, showing how they are priced and how a valid claim is prepared..
