The Joint Contracts Tribunal Standard Form of Building Contract, JCT 98, is now a well established and widely used form. That is not to say, however, that it is always well understood. It is a large, complex contract with a number of particularly difficult provisions. It is not surprising, therefore, that not much guidance has been published on the form. This book, first written by John Parris in 1982, and revised in 1985, was widely regarded as a valuable commentary on the Standard Form. Unavailable for some years, it has now been substantially updated and completely rewritten by David Chappell. Major changes have occurred since the last edition, including a raft of amendments to the contract itself, much new legislation including the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and substantial new case law. The book covers all these as well as the complex performance specified work provisions and the difficult problems of nomination. The nominated sub-contract conditions are referred to where appropriate, and the book contains guidance on related matters, such as warranties, letters of intent and quantum meruit. The book is not simply a re-writing of the contract in simply terms. It contains very valuable insights and much needed guidance on some of the lesser known implications of the current form The book will provide a valuable reference for clients' professional advisers and contractors, as well as for lawyers needing an introduction to the contract.

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.
