This book provides a practical tool for all those using the suite of JCT Intermediate
Building Contracts. It deals with the form under topics, considering the roles of
the various parties and important matters such as payments, claims, termination and
Legal language has been avoided in favour of simple explanations of legal concepts,
supported by flowcharts, tables and sample letters.
The Third Edition has been substantially revised to take account of the 2005 versions
of the main contract and subcontracts - the first major update since 1984 - and includes
discussion of the completely new form which makes provision for contractor's design.
The structure of the main contract has changed dramatically, clauses have been rearranged,
renumbered and reworded, sectional completion has been incorporated and some terminology
has been changed.
Almost 50 new cases have been included as well as relevant recent legislation.
David Chappell's books have always been known for their readable style and practical
approach to contract problems. This book is no exception.

and others' - Construction Law
