The Technology and Construction Court is one of the specialist jurisdictions of the High Court. It deals with a specialised workload involving construction industry and engineering disputes and, increasingly, information technology disputes. Its work often involves heavy factual cases, but also action in support of other dispute resolution methods such as arbitration, mediation, or adjudication under the Housing Grants, Construction, and Regeneration Act 1996.

Technology and Construction Court :Practice and Procedure provides a unique and authoritative guide to this jurisdiction. It examines the day-to-day workings of the Court in detail, including: the relevant Civil Procedure Rules, the Pre-Action Protocol procedure, case management, alternative dispute resolution, the Court's support for arbitration, the stages in proceedings leading up to trial, the enforcement of adjudicators' decisions and costs.

The book is fully up-to-date to take account of the second edition of the TCC Guide, which takes effect from October 2005. The text offers step-by-step guide to the practice and procedures involved in the initiating and defending of proceedings, together with expert analysis and guidance on matters unique to the Court - such as Scott schedules, handling of expert witnesses, and enforcement of adjudication decisions.

The authors are specialist practitioners with extensive experience of the Court from both sides of the legal profession. They have combined an authoritative analysis of the powers and constitution of the Court with detailed attention to the practical matters facing litigants, including timescales, costs, and the interaction of the Court's powers with alternative dispute resolution methods. There are useful appendices with extensive materials including a list of the current Judges, a list of District Registries, relevant legislation, rules of procedure, Practice Directions, and statutory instruments and various standard forms.
