Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This second edition of Building Procurement has been revised to take into account recent developments in procurement, such as the Private Finance initiative, as well as some of the recommendations in the Latham Report and its working groups. The author sets out the basics of the building process, the principal players, along with general conventions and background information on building contracts and conditions of appointment for consultants. Fourteen case studies, based on real projects principally from the author's experience, are included to illustrate the progressive nature of procurement in practice. Examples of good and bad procurement decisions are given in the studies, with a postscript and comment on the reasons for success or failure.
