This book is an introduction to construction contract administration and management, covering the delivery and execution stage of a construction project and the various issues which the contract administrator needs to proactively manage.

It can therefore be used as a contract administrator’s resource book covering what needs to be done (and why) to keep a construction project on track from a commercial and contractual perspective.

It is particularly appropriate for students and new practitioners from varied construction professions and whilst it covers domestic (UK) projects, it will be particularly useful for those studying and working on international projects where terminology, procedures and legal systems may differ from the UK.

The content is split into four parts and is subdivided into easy-to-read chapters replicating the timeline of a project during the construction stage:-

  • Part A covers initiating the construction stage, project delivery mechanisms, contract administration and health and safety management;
  • Part B covers managing the construction stage, contractor performance and relationship management;
  • Part C covers finalising the construction stage, project completion and close-out;
  • Part D covers claims and disputes.
Introduction to Construction Contract Management will be particularly useful for students enrolled on global construction programmes together with international distance learning students and non-cognate graduates starting out on an international career in construction contract administration and quantity surveying.
