Sarah Lupton's best-selling Guide comes fully revised for JCT 2011, to provide the most up-to-date authoritative working aids to the operation and administration of the main JCT Design and Build Contract 2011.
It provides a comprehensive analysis of the respective form in light of today's legal and practice landscape, pointing out all the recent developments an changes to each contract and providing illuminating and up-to-date cases as valuable lessons to the unwary.
The contract's provisions, procedures and supplementary conditions are organised into the key practical topics - such as 'documents', 'programme', 'payment', and 'insurance' - providing the hard-pressed practitioner with a comprehensive and concise reference guide for specific guidance during the course of the job.
The guide assumes only general knowledge of Contracts and so can be used by both the architect and construction students on the threshold of undertaking their professional examinations. It also serves as an invaluable desktop reference guide for the busy contract administrator.
