Construction Contracts Summary

Construction Contracts: Law and Management by J. R. Murdoch

In this book, the authors focus on law relating to construction contracts and the administraion of those contracts. Although this branch of law is an aspect of the general law of contract, the particular complexities associated with construction and the interdependence of tort and contract make this an increasingly important specialist area. As well as the need for lawyers to become better informed about construction there is also an urgent need for construction professionals to become better informed about the law. It is this latter need which is addressed by "Construction Contracts". The book is aimed at those who already have basic understanding of the principles of contract and tort and takes them through the issues which are peculiar to construction contracts - both building and civil engineering. The prinicples are applied by constant references to a full range of standard form contracts used in the industry.
