This volume describes the concept of set-off in contract law within the construction industry, and looks in detail at the provisions of the main building and civil engineering contracts.;If one party to a construction contract does work which is defective, the other party is allowed by law to ""set off"", or deduct, a sum required to make good that defect.

This happens frequently in construction contracts and regularly involves large sums of money, disputes and litigation. It is a complex area of the law with a number of cases, as well as the contractual provisions themselves, prescribing a party's right of set-off.
