Guide to MW05, the new edition of Sarah Lupton’s very successful Guide to MW98, acts as a working aid to the operation and administration of the JCT Minor Works Building Contract 2005 (MW05). It points out the important new changes to the contract, which now exists in two versions with the introduction of Minor Works Building Contract with contractor’s design (MWD05) – also covered in this book – and reflects on up-to-date cases which serve as valuable lessons for the unwary.

The contract’s provisions, procedures and supplementary conditions are organised and defined by subject and are supported by useful indexes, while clause comparison tables allow a quick and easy way to understand how it relates to the old contract. Because MW05’s striking brevity paradoxically requires a greater understanding of general principles of contract law than is found in longer contracts, the book outlines this legal framework and includes a short summary of implied terms.

Altogether, the guide provides the hard-pressed practitioner with a comprehensive concise reference guide to contractual issues during the course of a job under the contract. It assumes only a general knowledge of JCT contracts and in that respect is ideal for architecture and other construction students on the threshold of undertaking their professional examinations.
