Aimed at construction professionals, contractors and undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book confronts all of the difficult problems that arise in claims situations in the UK and internationally. Extensive reference to UK and international case law and a systematic approach to various types of claims, assisted by helpful and explanatory diagrams, make this book second to none as a 'trouble-shooting' guide to the presentation of, and response to, the negotiation and settlement of claims. This new edition considers in equal measure the latest editions of both NEC3 and JCT contracts and provides worked examples of claims under each. It also includes the latest revisions to the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and the Scheme for Construction Contracts, which together make significant changes to payment and adjudication in the construction industry.
Other key features: * A practical approach to solving contract claims including essential sections on claims presentation, delay analysis and non-productivity calculations * An emphasis on dealing with factual evidence * Helpful spreadsheet examples * Up-to-date coverage of developments in competition law in relation to the public procurement regulations, and the impact of these requirements at tender stage * A book that will save professionals and contractors time and money, and prepare students for the reality of the construction industry
