Changes to the work on construction projects are a common cause of dispute. Such variations lead to thousands of claims in the UK every year and many more internationally. Liability for variations is not only relevant to claims for sums due for extra work but this is also an important underlying factor in many other construction disputes, such as delay, disruption, defects and project termination. This is the first book to deal exclusively with variations in construction contracts and provide the detailed and comprehensive coverage that it demands. Construction Contract Variations analyses the issues that arise in determining whether certain work is a variation, the contractor’s obligation to undertake such work as well as its right to be paid. It deals with the employer’s power to vary and the extent of its duties to approve changes. The book also analyses the role of the consultant in the process and the valuation of variations. It reviews these topics by reference to a range of construction contracts. This is an essential guide for practitioners and industry professionals who advise on these issues and have a role in managing, directing and compensating change. Participants in the construction industry will find this book an invaluable guide, as will specialists and students of construction law, project management and quantity surveying.

In recent years, a number of global claims have failed because they were presented without any systematic analysis, justification or proper calculation of losses. Hence, Global Claims in Construction highlights these issues as well as the importance of understanding causation, factual necessity and the courts’ attitude and approach to global claims. Global Claims in Construction addresses the principles of global claims and their calculation methodologies in detail through extensive references to literature, case law and a real world case study. It aims to be a valuable resource for professionals working in the construction industry, as well as students in construction and engineering.

Most medium to large construction contracts include a claim forextra payment for variations or disruption to the programme. Whilstthe causes of the claim are often well documented, what can andcannot be included in the payment is often misunderstood and thecalculation of quantum consequently becomes vague and poorlysubstantiated. Thoroughly updated over the previous edition, reflectingpertinent Court decisions on damages and the duty to mitigate, thenew edition covers new provisions of the revised JCT 2005 contractsand the 2005 New Engineering Contract. There is substantialadditional material on issues arising from time and delay analysisand the financial consequences of changes to time – issuesthat regularly cause real problems in the evaluation of quantum forconstruction claims. Most current books on the subject concentrate on theestablishment of liability and the requirements of individualstandard forms of contract. This book, however, concentrates on thequantification of claims after liability has been established,regardless of the form of contract used, and sets out theprinciples and methods that should be reflected in the evaluationof claim quantum and the standard of substantiation required. Itwill therefore appeal to those working with both building andengineering contracts.

The second edition of Building Contract Claims and Disputes (first published as Building Contract Disputes) provides a study of the causes of contractual disputes, particularly of claims in construction projects and of how they can be resolved successfully. It examines contracts, decisions, documentation and project operation from the points of view of clients, contractors, subcontractors and professional advisers. Readers in practice will find this book an invaluable and comprehensive reference. Those taking professional examinations or degree and postgraduate courses will also benefit greatly from it. The book explains the background, preparation and settlement of claims, with negotiation and dispute resolution from mediation to adjudication, arbitration and legal proceedings. The interrelations of variations, extension of time and loss and expense are considered. Three specially structured case studies of construction projects illustrate and apply the principles to detailed practical situations. This edition deals with a considerably expanded range of contracts, including JCT, GC/Works/1, design and build, minor works, ICE and innovative NEC. It covers recent legal rulings and changes in the law and contract forms, as well as parts of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 and the Arbitration Act 1996.

This is the first book to establish a theoretical framework forcommercial management. It argues that managing the contractual andcommercial issues of projects – from project inception tocompletion – is vital in linking operations at the projectlevel and the multiple projects (portfolios/ programmes) level tothe corporate core of a company. The book focuses on commercial management within the context ofproject oriented organisations, for example: aerospace,construction, IT, pharmaceutical and telecommunications – inthe private and public sectors. By bringing together contributionsfrom leading researchers and practitioners in commercialmanagement, it presents the state-of-the-art in commercialmanagement covering both current research and best practice. Commercial Management of Projects: defining thediscipline covers the external milieu (competition,culture, procurement systems); the corporate milieu(corporate governance, strategy, marketing, trust, outsourcing);the projects milieu (management of uncertainty, conflictmanagement and dispute resolution, performance measurement, valuemanagement); and the project milieu (project governance,contract management, bidding, purchasing, logistics and supply,cost value reconciliation). Collectively the chapters constitute a step towards the creationof a body of knowledge and a research agenda for commercialmanagement.
