The second edition of this well-regarded title continues to take a clear and practical approach to the law and practice relating to construction contracts in the UK. It provides comprehensive coverage of the substantive law and modern dispute resolution procedures in the field of construction.

Throughout the work the author provides key practical tips including: where and when you issue proceedings; what the judges will expect and their preferences; and how trials can be made shorter. Aseparate section also examines enforcement of adjudicator's awards covering recent case law on this area. This is carefully examined and digested in detail to ensure the reader has an understanding of the pitfalls of enforcement.

It includes a new chapter on partnering and revised and updated appendices to include the amendments to the Housing Grants, Construction, and Regeneration Act 1996.
