This fifth edition of "Contractual Procedures in the Construction Industry" introduces a number of new chapters that reflect the changes in procurement, including health and safety management, partnering the supply chain, sustainability and constructing excellence in the built environment. It aims to provide the student with a comprehensive understanding of the subject and reinforces the changes that are taking place within the construction industry, such as how it is organised and the way in which consultants, contractors, subcontractors and all of those involved in the supply chain obtain work.

The key features include: four new chapters on health and safety management, partnering the supply chain, sustainability and constructing excellence in the built environment; existing chapters have been updated to include present legislation; new case studies, and a special section on legal cases; and new appendices. This new edition is suitable for students taking undergraduate courses in Building and Surveying, Quantity Surveying, Construction Management, and Estate Management. It is also suitable for students on HND/C courses in Building, and Construction Management and foundation degree courses in Building and Construction Management.
