By bringing together a wide range of cases on the main aspects of construction contract law Building Contract Casebook will help all construction professionals get to know and understand the legal principles established in each case.

The casebook presents, in a handy, abbreviated form, the leading cases on the range of relevant contractual topics, together with lesser-known but important decisions. A number of useful decisions from the Commonwealth are also included. The approach is practical rather than academic, in order to ensure it is useful in the construction site office.
