Description - Building Contract Claims by David Chappell
Many building projects are the subject of claims ? the
assertion of a right, usually by the contractor, to an extension of
the contract period or an additional payment under the terms of the
building contract. Many of these claims are unsound or ill-founded,
often because the basic principles are misunderstood.
This highly regarded book examines the legal basis of claims for
extensions of time and 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 problems, acceleration, time at large, common
law and contractual claims, global claims, and heads of claim and
their substantiation. With the publication of the fifth edition,
Building Contract Claims has been thoroughly revised to
ensure it is fully up to date with the latest contracts, court
judgments and building practice. Changes include:
Coverage of over 60 additional relevant court cases
Coverage of the 2005 JCT contracts suite
Coverage of changes to the NEC contract
Coverage of additional contracts such as Constructing
Excellence; Measured Term Contract and the ACA PPC2000 contract
together with the 2005 relevant JCT sub-contracts
Important changes to liquidated damages and to extensions of
time, and the giving of notices
Appendix 1 has been substantially revised
Like its predecessors, the fifth edition of Building Contract
Claims will be essential reading for architects, contract
administrators, project managers and quantity surveyors, as well as
contractors, contracts consultants and construction lawyers.
