The Joint Contracts Tribunal's (JCT) Standard Form of Building Contract is the most common contract used in the UK to procure building work and is updated regularly to account for changing legislation and industry practise.

The JCT05 Building Contract helps clarify complex areas, making it an essential reference for professionals seeking to update their knowledge. The book works through the contract issues thoroughly yet clearly, using case law examples to demonstrate the latest amendments in regards to the Construction Act.

A fundamental part of a construction student's degree is understanding the contract and this book gives them a full understanding of the core elements involved in a straight forward manner with plenty of examples.
