These days, subcontractors in the construction industry are generally aware of their rights and obligations, and main contractors and clients' advisers need to keep abreast of developments in subcontract law. As the majority of work is carried out under JCT contracts, all parties need to understand the rights and obligations of the latest JCT 05 suite of subcontracts, against the background of the general principles of contract law.

A companion to Peter Barnes' first book, The JCT 05 Standard Building Sub-Contract, this book deals with all the other JCT 05 subcontracts including:

Design and Build Subcontract, Major Project Subcontract, Intermediate Subcontract, Intermediate Subcontract with subcontractor's design, Intermediate Named Subcontract, Short Form of Subcontract and the Sub-Subcontract

The book is organised around issues, such as payment, time, variations, and loss and/or expense, and, where appropriate it compares and contrasts the differing approaches of individual subcontracts. The book features a range of standard letters.
