A contract should set out in writing precisely what are the agreed intentions of the parties under any circumstances. A skilled contract draughtsperson will produce a document that avoids misunderstandings and undefined areas of responsibility, ensuring a harmonious relationship between the parties during the performance of the works. This highly readable guide explains the main features of contracts applicable to the design, construction and servicing of civil, building, electrical or mechanical works. Throughout, the emphasis is on practical guidance, with clear explanations of the essential elements including legality, uncertainty, undue influence, agencies, overseas works, sub-contracts and quality assurance. Numerous appendices give common terms used in contracts, typical sets of standard conditions and more useful information. This book will be particularly valuable for engineers new to engineering contracts and, together with the author's two other titles on competitive tendering and project control, present a comprehensive and unique resource for all managers in the construction industry.
