This highly readable guide explains the main features of contracts applicable to the design, construction and servicing of civil, building, electrical or mechanical works. The emphasis throughout is on practical guidance, with clear explanations of the essential elements including legality, uncertainty, undue influence, agencies, overseas works, sub-contracts and quality assurance. Numerous appendices give common terms used in contracts, typical sets of standard conditions and further useful information. The book is particularly suitable for those new to the subject who will find practical guidance on understanding contracts in a wide range of civil engineering and construction works.

As usage of the NEC (formerly the New Engineering Contract) family of contracts continues to grow worldwide, so does the importance of understanding its clauses and nuances to everyone working in the built environment. This set of contracts, currently in the third edition, is different to others in concept as well as format, so users may well find themselves needing a helping hand along the way. Understanding the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Short Contract uses plain English to lead the reader through the contract’s key features, including: the use of early warnings programme provisions payment compensation events preparing and assessing tenders Common problems are signalled to the reader throughout, and the correct way of reading each clause explained. In addition, the things to consider when deciding between the ECSC and the longer Engineering and Construction Contract are discussed in detail. Written for professionals without legal backgrounds, by a practicing construction contract consultant, this handbook is the most straightforward, balanced and practical guide to the NEC3 ECSC available. An ideal companion for Employers, Contractors, Project Managers, Supervisors, Engineers, Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Subcontractors, and anyone else interested in working successfully with the NEC3 ECSC.

More than ten years have passed since the first edition was published. During that period there have been a substantial number of changes in geotechnical engineering, especially in the applications of foundation engineering. As the world population increases, more land is needed and many soil deposits previously deemed unsuitable for residential housing or other construction projects are now being used. Such areas include problematic soil regions, mining subsidence areas, and sanitary landfills. To overcome the problems associated with these natural or man-made soil deposits, new and improved methods of analysis, design, and implementation are needed in foundation construction. As society develops and living standards rise, tall buildings, transportation facilities, and industrial complexes are increasingly being built. Because of the heavy design loads and the complicated environments, the traditional design concepts, construction materials, methods, and equipment also need improvement. Further, recent energy and material shortages have caused additional burdens on the engineering profession and brought about the need to seek alternative or cost-saving methods for foundation design and construction.

Civil Engineering Contracts: Practice and Procedure, Second Edition explains the contract procedures used in civil engineering projects. Topics covered include types of contract in civil engineering, general conditions of contract, insurances, and tender procedures. The powers, duties, and functions of the engineer and his representative are also considered. This book is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with an overview of the philosophy underlying the contract system in civil engineering, followed by a discussion on the promotion of civil engineering works. The reader is then introduced to types of civil engineering contracts; contract risk and contract responsibility; the application of contract documents; and general conditions of contract. The remaining chapters focus on contract specifications; bill of quantities and methods of measurement; principles and types of insurance; procedures for competitive bids or tenders; cost estimates, methods of pricing, and rate fixing; and claims on civil engineering contracts. The final chapter is devoted to arbitration and related procedure for the settlement of contract disputes. This monograph will be useful to practicing civil engineers who are involved with contract administration and to younger engineers who are aspiring to obtain professional qualifications.

Foundation Engineering in Difficult Ground discusses the different principles and practices involved in the building of foundations in different soil types, especially on difficult ground. The book covers topics such as the classification of soil; silts, loess, and tills; the mechanical behavior of rocks; and the engineering aspects of rock weathering, engineering classification of rock masses, and the engineering performance of rocks. Also covered in the book are topics such as models for the mechanical behaviour of soil; computer predictions in difficult soil conditions; foundations on rock, settlement foundations, and the relation of earth movement on foundations; ground treatment; and the appraisal of stability conditions in different soil conditions. The text is recommended for engineers who are in need of a guide in the establishment of foundations in different soil conditions, especially those in difficult ones.
