This eigth edition of David Chappell's bestselling guide to the most popular form of construction contracts has been completely revised to take into account the new contracts which have been introduced since May 2005. These include: JCT Standard Building Contract (SBC), JCT Intermediate Building Contract (IC) and 'with contractor's design' (ICD), JCT Minor Works Building Contract (MW) and 'with contractor's design' (MWD), and JCT Design and Build Contract (DB) which have replaced the old JCT 98, IFC 98, MW 98, and WCD 98 contracts. Each contract has been restructured and all the clause numbers have changed together with some terminology. Virtually all the clauses have been reworded and updated in line with recent case law. David Chappell avoids legal jargon but writes with authority and precision. Architects, quantity surveyors, contractors and students of these professions will find this a straightforward and practical reference tool arranged by topic.
