Presentation and Settlement of Contractor's Claims provides a detailed and practical examination for construction professionals. Contractual disputes, often involving large sums of money, occur with increasing frequency in the construction industry.

This book presents - in non-legal language - sound professional advice from recognized experts in the field on the practical aspects of claims. This edition has been brought right up to date by taking into account legal decisions promulgated over the last 17 years, as well as reflecting the effects of inflation on claims. The much awaited new edition is based on the 1998 JCT contract.
