Many building contract claims are ill-founded, often because the basic principles are misunderstood. This highly regarded book examines the legal basis of claims for additional payment, and what can and cannot be claimed under the main forms of contract. It includes chapters dealing with direct loss and expense, liquidated damages, extension of time, concurrency, acceleration, time at large, common law and contractual claims, global claims, heads of claim and their substantiation. The new fourth edition has been substantially restructured and updated. Nearly 100 additional cases have been added as well as four new contracts: the JCT Construction Management and Major Project contracts, the JCT Standard Form of Domestic Subcontract, and the Engineering and Construction Contract (the NEC Form). The book continues to use the JCT Standard Form (JCT 98) as the basis of the text, with important differences highlighted in the other forms. Seventeen forms are dealt with and they have all been updated since the last edition of this book. This new edition is essential reading for architects, contract administrators, project managers and quantity surveyors. It will also be invaluable to contractors, contracts consultants and construction lawyers.

The Minor Works Building Contract is the most widely used of the JCT forms of contact, not only for simple, short contracts of moderate price, for which it is intended, but also for much larger projects for which it is often not suited at all. As a result, contractual difficulties can arise, and despite the form's simplicity an understanding of the legal background to the form is essential. This book explains the practical applications of the form from the point of view of the employer, architect and contractor. It provides a straightforward explanation of the legal aspects of the form supported by flow charts, tables and sample letters. The Fourth Edition has been revised to cover the 2005 edition of the form, which has given the contract a completely new look. The book now covers the new JCT Minor Works Building Contract with contractor's design (MWD).

This book – a companion to Peter Barnes’ book on the sub-contract for the JCT 2005 Standard Building Contract, The JCT 05 Standard Building Sub-Contract – covers the other eight current JCT sub-contracts: · the Design and Build Sub-Contract · the Major Project Sub-Contract · the Intermediate Sub-Contract · the Intermediate Sub-Contract with sub-contractor’s design · the Intermediate Named Sub-Contract · the Minor Works Sub-Contract with sub-contractor’s design · the Short Form of Sub-Contract · the Sub-subcontract Like the sub-contract for the JCT 2005 Standard Building Contract, these forms are not well covered by other books on building contracts, despite the importance of specialist contractors and the size and value of their work. This book considers a range of key issues, including questions of time, variations, loss and expense, and payment, and examines how these operate under the individual sub-contracts. It will be of interest not only to sub-contractors and main contractors, but also to construction professionals and lawyers.
