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.

With 50 new questions, and thorough updates to address changes to the law and contracts, this is an invaluable first port of call for any construction law problem. Questions range in content from extensions of time, liquidated damages and loss and/or expense to issues of practical completion, defects, valuation, certificates and payment, architects’ instructions, adjudication and fees. Among the new questions are: Is the contractor bound by its price even if there is an error? How do terms about working in a spirit of trust affect other clauses? Can architects lose their rights to certify under JCT 2011 contracts? Every question included has been asked of David Chappell during his career, and he uses his vast experience to provide clear, easy to follow advice in this book. Most were originally asked by architects, but the answers will be of wide interest to everyone involved in construction.
