Book Description

Guide to JCT Design and Build Contract 2016, the new edition of the author's ever popular Guide to DB11, is a practical guide to the operation and administration of the JCT Design & Build Building Contract suite 2016. All of the contract's provisions, procedures and conditions are organised and explained by subject, clearly distinguishing the different obligations due to various parties and the contractual issues arising during the course of a job - all backed up by the latest legislation and case law.

Not only is this an indispensable reference for the hard-pressed practitioner, but, assuming no prior knowledge of JCT contracts or the law, it is also ideal for architecture and other construction students on the threshold of undertaking their professional exams.
