JCT Minor Works Building Contracts by David Chappell
Book DescriptionThe Minor Works Contract is the most widely used of the JCT forms of contract, not only for simple, short contracts of moderate price, for which it is intended, but also for much larger projects for which it is often not suited at all. As a result, contractual difficulties can arise, and despite the form's simplicity an understanding of the legal background to the form is essential. This book explains the practical applications of the form from the point of view of the employer, architect and contractor. It provides a straightforward explanation of the legal aspects of the form supported by flow charts, tables and sample letters. The fourth edition has been substantially revised to take account of the revised 2005 contract for minor works (MW), as well as the completely new form catering for those instances when the contractor undertakes some design work as well as construction (MWD). There is some new terminology in the contracts and the clauses have been substantially reorganised and reworded. Contract particulars and schedules have been added. Account has been taken of some 30 new cases and of the 2004 editions of the RIBA terms of engagement. The Author David Chappell BA(HonsArch), MA (Arch), MA (Law), PhD, RIBA has 45 years' experience in the construction industry, having worked as an architect in the public and private sectors, as contracts administrator for a building contractor, as a lecturer in construction law and contract procedures and, for the last fifteen years, as a construction contract consultant . He is currently the Director of David Chappell Consultancy Limited and frequently acts as an adjudicator. He was Visiting Professor of Practice Management and Law at the University of Central England in Birmingham. David Chappell is the author of many articles and books for the construction industry. He is one of the RIBA Specialist Advisors and lectures widely. Cover design by Simon Witter
