Construction Contracts Law and Management 4e, Murdoch


Construction Contracts Law and Management 4th Edition PDF Download Ebook. John Murdoch and Will Hughes provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the legislation, administration and management of construction contracts.

Introducing this topic at the core of construction law and management, this book provides students with a one-stop reference on construction contracts. Significant new material covers procurement, tendering, developments in dispute settlement, commentary on all key legislation, case law and contract amendments up to July 2007.

In line with new thinking in construction management research, this authoritative guide is essential reading for every construction undergraduate and an extremely useful source of reference for practitioners. Although the legal principles involved in construction contracts and their management and administration are an aspect of general contract law, the practical and commercial complexities of the construction industry have increasingly made this a specialist field. Recognizing this, this text is a fully revised edition of the UK’s leading textbook on the law governing this area.

Brought up to date with recent cases and developments in the law as it stands at July 2000, this new edition takes full account of the effects of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, the Arbitration Act 1996, the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 and the changes in the legal system brought about by the Woolf reforms.

This guidebook also includes extended coverage of financial protection, construction insurance and tendering controls, as well as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations. It has been revised to take account of changes to the common standard-form contracts, particularly the New Engineering Contract and the GC/Works family of contracts.

Retaining the same basic approach as its successful predecessors, this important text introduces the general principles that underlie contracts in construction, illustrating them by reference to the most important standard forms currently in use.
