The book begins by considering the general backcloth to civil engineering works and contracts, including funding, preliminary investigations and the preparation of engineer's reports. The form and purpose of the various contract documents are examined and the principal requirements of the ICE Conditions summarised and explained. The principal tendering arrangements are described and compared, together with the more commonly practised approaches to estimating the cost of civil engineering works. Site organisation and supervision are covered in sufficient depth to illustrate the means by which a civil engineering project can be effectively planned, managed and controlled, and having regard to such important aspects as productivity, plant usage and safety of operatives. The method of measuring and valuing civil engineering works is explored and this encompasses the use of daywork, issue of interim certificates, settlement of final accounts, valuation of variations and financial control of contracts. Finally, the book examines the background to contractors' claims and how they should be presented by the contractor and dealt with by the engineer.

Peter Marsh’s book has long been recognized as a standard work. With its emphasis on the commercial aspects of contracting, this book represents an eminently practical guide to this complex subject for purchaser and contractor alike. This edition reflects recent changes in case law and legislation, the major change being the passing of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. The book also charts changes to model forms of contract conditions, in particular the new PACE forms of government contracts. Contracts covered are those for the construction of buildings and civil engineering works, the supply and installation of mechanical, electrical and process plants and also for computer system and facilities management. Methods of contracting, including PFI schemes, are critically examined and reference is made to the Government’s latest thinking on prime contracting. As in previous editions, this book covers contract planning and contract administration, deals with both the preparation and the appraisal of tenders and explains in detail how to draft the key clauses in a contract to ensure the maximum advantage. In this revised version, Contracting for Engineering and Construction Projects will continue to serve the needs of purchasing and contracts staff, engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers and legal advisers seeking a reliable source of guidance.

It discusses the different circumstances dictating the choice of both tendering procedures and contractual arrangements and discusses their advantages and disadvantages. The new edition has been revised to take into account the CDM Regulations and contractual changes introduced by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act. The chapters on management and construction management contracts and on design and build contracts have been considerably revised, and for the first time there is a chapter on partnering. The authors are a group of architects and quantity surveyors with experience in private practice and local government. From the Chartered Quantity Surveyor: These publications by The Aqua Group are absolutely essential reading for the young architect, civil engineer and QS.

It encourages the Contractor to be more closely involved in aspects of design, provides for payment to the Contractor on a cost reimbursable basis and an incentive share arrangement if the costs differ from the target. A more open style of control and management, which permits an early and joint approach to the identification and management of risks, obliges parties to recognise and understand each other's objectives and promotes closer working relationships.

Estimators need to understand the consequences of entering into a contract, often defined by complex conditions and documents, as well as to appreciate the technical requirements of the project. Estimating and Tendering for Construction Work, 5th edition, explains the job of the estimator through every stage, from early cost studies to the creation of budgets for successful tenders. This new edition reflects recent developments in the field and covers: new tendering and procurement methods the move from basic estimating to cost-planning and the greater emphasis placed on partnering and collaborative working the New Rules of Measurement (NRM1 and 2), and examines ways in which practicing estimators are implementing the guidance emerging technologies such as BIM (Building Information Modelling) and estimating systems which can interact with 3D design models With the majority of projects procured using design-and-build contracts, this edition explains the contractor’s role in setting costs, and design statements, to inform and control the development of a project’s design. Clearly-written and illustrated with examples, notes and technical documentation, this book is ideal for students on construction-related courses at HNC/HND and Degree levels. It is also an important source for associated professions and estimators at the outset of their careers.

An Archaeological Investigation is usually undertaken to provide information: - In response to a proposed development which could cause damage to archaeological remains. - As part of the planning process (within the framework of appropriate national planning policy guidance notes) and/or development plan policy. - As part of an Environmental Impact Assessment. - Inconnection with management plans and mitigation strategies of private, local and national or international bodies. - Outside the planning process (e.g infrastructure projects, ecclesiastical developemtn, coastal erosion, agriculture, forestry and countryside management, works by public utilities and statutory undertakers) Where the Investigation finds Archaeological Remains they are recorded, analysed and interpreted and the findings disseminated as appropriate. These Conditions of Contract, the first of its kind, regulate the business relationship between the Employer and the specialist Archaeological Contractor during the course of an Arcaeological Investigation. The Contract retains a pattern traditional in civil engineering contracts, with an investigation commissioned by an Employer (Landowners, developers etc.), designed or approved by an Engineer and carried out by a specialist Archaeological Contractor, only that the term 'Consultant' is used instead of 'Engineer'. Its advantages include: - Providing parties to the Contract with and "advanced warning" of circumstances that may give rise to additional costs or delay or which may warrant a significant change tothe scope of the Investigation. - Enabling the niminisation of additional cost and/or delay as well as potential for dispute. - Minimising the incidence of disputes and resolving those that may arise in aspeedy and non-confrontational manner. On that basis that many archaeological contracts will fall within the provisions of Part 2 of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, this Contract has been drafted to comply with the legislation with the intention that the variouw Statutory 'Schemes for Construction Contracts' should not apply.
