This ninth edition of David Chappell’s bestselling guide has been revised to take into account changes made in 2011 to payment provisions, and elsewhere. This remains the most concise guide available to the most commonly used JCT building contracts: Standard Building Contract with quantities, 2011 (SBC11), Intermediate Building Contract 2011 (IC11), Intermediate Building Contract with contractor’s design 2011 (ICD11), Minor Works Building Contract 2011 (MW11), Minor Works Building Contract with contractor’s design 2011 (MWD11) and Design and Build Contract 2011 (DB11).

Chappell avoids legal jargon but writes with authority and precision. Architects, quantity surveyors, contractors and students of these professions will find this a practical and affordable reference tool arranged by topic.
