Good Practice Guide: Extensions of Time

£6.99

Product description

This is a straight forward jargon-free practical guide about all aspects of extensions of time for all construction industry professionals. An extension of time is an issue which most architects and other construction professionals face sooner or later in their career. It is a complex area where the professional administering the contract must act in accordance with the contract conditions and failure to do so will potentially land the professional and/or his client in court. Throughout the guide the information is presented in a way that is immediately accessible, useful and related to the latest JCT Contracts. Tables, graphs and a glossary are used to help the reader navigate through chapters on liquidated damages, terms under standard contracts, notification of delay, supply of information, assessment, concurrent delays and ethical issues. The authors have clarified potentially complex issues with short, relevant examples drawn from case law and have defined difficult concepts in easy-reference text boxes. This Good Practice Guide is a friendly reference tool for all architects or other professionals charged with assessing extensions of time.
