Liquidated damages and extensions of time frequently form the basis of contract claims made under the standard building and civil engineering contracts. This well regarded book covers the legal principles and examines in depth the relevant clauses of the standard construction contracts.

The third edition takes account of new case law since the pervious edition was published over ten years ago, including the important case on Wembley Stadium. It also covers all the JCT 2005 new contracts and the latest edition of the new engineering contract, NEC3.
