It is an essential guide for engineers, project managers, construction managers, surveyors, and other professionals working in the construction industry, and will also be a valuable reference tool for students.
"It clearly explains the basis of the law in relation to claims for delays and disruption, and the requirements of different forms of contract for a valid claim. Helpfully, it links this to relevant case law…I would recommend this book to all construction professionals, both those starting their career and also experienced individuals."
