Construction law can be a minefield of complications and misunderstandings in which professionals need answers which are pithy and straightforward but also legally rigorous. In Construction Contracts: Questions and Answers, specialist in construction law David Chappell answers architects' and builders' common construction contract questions. Questions range in content and include: extensions of time liquidated damages loss and/or expense practical completion defects valuation certificates and payment architects' instructions adjudication and fees. Chappell's authoritative and practical advice answers questions ranging from simple queries, such as which date should be put on a contract, through to more complex issues, such as whether the contractor is entitled to take possession of a section of the work even though it is the contractor's fault that possession is not practicable.

Contracts and equivalent internal orders are the means of linking the design and construction of all civil engineering projects. To be effective these have to state who is who, what is to be constructed, where, when and how much payment will be due and what is to happen if these intentions are frustrated. They are therefore of vital importance to all engineers working in design or construction.

A contract (or an agreement) is associated with almost everything, wherein more than one person (or party) is involved. Whether it’s a marriage, purchase of a property or construction of a project, all need a proper contract and in-turn, they need resilient and robust contract administration. Today, large value and complex contracts have to cater to the needs of globalization, increased regulations and the ever-changing technologies. These complexities have contributed to an environment rendering administration of a contract difficult. Therefore, projects are prone to delays, additional unforeseen expenses and may also all-together lead to a project failure. This has also led many organizations to view a contract as a tool to have undue control by imposing rigid standards and conditions oblivious to the fact that these may not always be to their advantage. It is with this intent that this book has been written by an experienced contracts manager, who has had a first-hand experience of the struggle, while going through a jargon of clauses and documents within a contract.. The “basis of expectations” requires an overall understanding of the contract and the author expects that this book comes handy to such a professional in his/her pursuit of excellence.
