Construction law can be a minefield of complications and misunderstandings in which professionals need answers which are pithy and straightforward but also legally rigorous. In Construction Contracts: Questions and Answers, specialist in construction law David Chappell answers architects' and builders' common construction contract questions.

Questions range in content and include:

extensions of time
liquidated damages
loss and/or expense
practical completion
certificates and payment
architects' instructions
adjudication and fees.

Chappell's authoritative and practical advice answers questions ranging from simple queries, such as which date should be put on a contract, through to more complex issues, such as whether the contractor is entitled to take possession of a section of the work even though it is the contractor's fault that possession is not practicable.

In answering genuine questions on construction contracts, Chappell has created an invaluable resource on which not only architects, but also project managers, contractors, QSs, employers and others involved in construction can depend.
