An employer embarking upon a building project will inevitably have to enter into a number of complex contracts. There are published institutional standard forms for these purposes, but usually they will need to be amended in one way or another. The aim of this book is to help employers and their advisers (especially their Quantity Surveyors) in drawing up all the contracts required on a normal UK building project. The forms included in this book are a co-ordinated attack upon the task of legal documentation for building projects, and they are based upon, and incorporate by reference, the relevant published standard forms. The emphasis throughout is upon practicality. The forms are intended to achieve a good and reasonable deal for the employer, not a theoretical perfection which would be unachievable and non-negotiable in practice.
