2007 Edition


The Joint Contracts Tribunal issued a new Design and Build Form in 2005, a successor to the JCT Standard Form of Building Contract with Contractor's Design. It looks substantially different from its predecessor and it is different in structure and often in its wording.


This major new edition of David Chappell's well regarded book has been substantially revised to take account of the new contract terms and different structure. It also considers:


· the latest RIBA Terms of Engagement

· the standard novation agreements from the CIC and City of London Law Society

· more than 70 additional cases


It discusses areas where problems frequently arise:


· the allocation of design responsibility

· discrepancies

· the role of the employer's agent

· payment provisions

· the approval of drawings


The book will be useful for contractors, for professionals acting as employer's agent, whether architect, engineer or surveyor, and for the design team acting for the contractor. It will also be of interest to employers embarking on design and build for the first time and to lawyers.
