The second edition of Building Contract Claims and Disputes (first published as Building Contract Disputes) provides a study of the causes of contractual disputes, particularly of claims in construction projects and of how they can be resolved successfully. It examines contracts, decisions, documentation and project operation from the points of view of clients, contractors, subcontractors and professional advisers. Readers in practice will find this book an invaluable and comprehensive reference. Those taking professional examinations or degree and postgraduate courses will also benefit greatly from it. The book explains the background, preparation and settlement of claims, with negotiation and dispute resolution from mediation to adjudication, arbitration and legal proceedings. The interrelations of variations, extension of time and loss and expense are considered. Three specially structured case studies of construction projects illustrate and apply the principles to detailed practical situations. This edition deals with a considerably expanded range of contracts, including JCT, GC/Works/1, design and build, minor works, ICE and innovative NEC. It covers recent legal rulings and changes in the law and contract forms, as well as parts of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and the Arbitration Act 1996.

For nearly two decades, design-build (DB) contracting has become increasingly the method of choice in public and private construction projects. Many designers and builders are now drawn to design-build projects and must alter their business practices to accommodate the changed relationships within DB contracts. Preparing for Design-Build Projects: A Primer for Owners, Engineers, and Contractors is a professional reference that covers the basics of developing a design-build project. The authors focus on learning modules that break down the decision-making process and reassemble it as a straightforward method for DB projects from the owner's standpoint. This book acts as a timely guide on developing DB requests for qualification and requests for proposals. It also assists the reader in interpreting these documents in order to prepare a responsive DB proposal or to evaluate a series of proposals and make a source selection decision. Product Reviews "This book provides a comprehensive, overall approach toward design-build delivery. The instructions and case studies extend from the initial decision by an owner to utilize design-build for delivering a project through the selection and evaluation process. This approach provides invaluable insight to both agencies an dindividuals just getting familiar with design-build, as well as those with extensive project experience." ?Jeff Carpetner, P.E., Chief Engineer, Tacoma Narrows Bridge Project, Washington State Department of Transportation
