This book examines the new JCT Standard Building Sub-contracts for use with the radically revised 2005 JCT Standard Building Contract. It looks at the key contract conditions, considers the rights and obligations of the parties and how risk is allocated, and discusses the main practical problems that arise.

The Joint Contracts Tribunal's (JCT) Standard Form of Building Contract, one of the most common standard contracts used in the UK to procure building work, is updated regularly to take account of changes in legislation and industry practice and relevant court decisions from litigation. The JCT 05 Standard Building Contract: Law and Administration is a second edition to the authors' earlier award-winning The JCT98 Building Contract: Law and Administration, and clarifies complex issues surrounding obligations and rights under the contract. This makes it an essential reference for construction professionals, employers, contractors, and lawyers new to construction seeking to update and consolidate their knowledge. The book also provides the knowledge and understanding of the contract, which are a fundamental part of the education of most students who go on to become managers and leaders in the construction industry. It thoroughly works through the provisions of the contract in simple language, using case law examples and relevant statute to demonstrate approaches to its interpretation.

This book – a companion to Peter Barnes’ book on the sub-contract for the JCT 2005 Standard Building Contract, The JCT 05 Standard Building Sub-Contract – covers the other eight current JCT sub-contracts: · the Design and Build Sub-Contract · the Major Project Sub-Contract · the Intermediate Sub-Contract · the Intermediate Sub-Contract with sub-contractor’s design · the Intermediate Named Sub-Contract · the Minor Works Sub-Contract with sub-contractor’s design · the Short Form of Sub-Contract · the Sub-subcontract Like the sub-contract for the JCT 2005 Standard Building Contract, these forms are not well covered by other books on building contracts, despite the importance of specialist contractors and the size and value of their work. This book considers a range of key issues, including questions of time, variations, loss and expense, and payment, and examines how these operate under the individual sub-contracts. It will be of interest not only to sub-contractors and main contractors, but also to construction professionals and lawyers.

Mounting emphasis on construction supply chain management (CSCM) is due to both global sourcing of materials and a shortage of labor. These factors force increasing amounts of value-added work to be conducted off-site deep in the supply chain. Construction Supply Chain Management Handbook compiles in one comprehensive source an overview of the diverse research and examples of construction supply chain practice around the world. Reflecting the emergence of CSCM as an important area of multi-national research and practice, this volume takes an interdisciplinary perspective with contributions from leading international authors in three major areas: production and operations analysis, organizational perspectives, and information technology. The book begins with a survey of the current literature on modeling construction supply chain production and describes a set of approaches and methods for designing and operating project supply chains with references to design and materials production. It provides the basic framework for understanding the challenges and approaches to representing and improving supply chain performance. The next section recognizes the importance of considering arrangements between the different firms involved in designing, procuring, and assembling construction, and reviews various perspectives to understanding and improving organizational issues in the supply chain. The final section provides an overview of a range of information technologies that can contribute to supply chain performance, as well as examples of effective use. The organization and sourcing of materials is increasingly complex across the global construction industry. Construction clients are demanding faster, more responsive construction processes and higher quality facilities. This volume provides an invaluable resource to understanding the implications of supply chain management, which is sure to result in more effective construction project execution.

This book is an introduction to construction contract administration and management, covering the delivery and execution stage of a construction project and the various issues which the contract administrator needs to proactively manage. It can therefore be used as a contract administrator’s resource book covering what needs to be done (and why) to keep a construction project on track from a commercial and contractual perspective. It is particularly appropriate for students and new practitioners from varied construction professions and whilst it covers domestic (UK) projects, it will be particularly useful for those studying and working on international projects where terminology, procedures and legal systems may differ from the UK. The content is split into four parts and is subdivided into easy-to-read chapters replicating the timeline of a project during the construction stage: Part A covers initiating the construction stage, project delivery mechanisms, contract administration and health and safety management; Part B covers managing the construction stage, contractor performance and relationship management; Part C covers finalising the construction stage, project completion and close-out; Part D covers claims and disputes. Introduction to Construction Contract Management will be particularly useful for students enrolled on global construction programmes together with international distance learning students and non-cognate graduates starting out on an international career in construction contract administration and quantity surveying.
