Description

This tenth edition of David Chappell’s bestselling guide has been revised to take into account changes made in 2016 to payment provisions, loss and/or expense, insurance and many other smaller but significant changes, and includes a section on performance bonds and guarantees. This remains the most concise guide available to the most commonly used JCT building contracts: Standard Building Contract with quantities, 2016 (SBC16), Intermediate Building Contract 2016 (IC16), Intermediate Building Contract with contractor’s design 2016 (ICD16), Minor Works Building Contract 2016 (MW16), Minor Works Building Contract with contractor’s design 2016 (MWD16) and Design and Build Contract 2016 (DB16).

Chappell avoids legal jargon and 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.
