Construction law can be a minefield. Professionals need answers which are pithy and straightforward, as well as legally rigorous.

The two hundred questions in the book are real questions, picked from the thousands of telephone enquiries David Chappell has received as a Specialist Adviser to the Royal Institute of British Architects. Although the enquiries were originally from architects, the answers to most of them are of interest to project managers, contractors, QSs, employers and others involved in construction.

The material is considerably updated from the first edition – weeded, extended and almost doubled in coverage. The questions range in content from extensions of time, liquidated damages and loss and/or expense to issues of warranties, bonds, novation, practical completion, defects, valuation, certificates and payment, architects’ instructions, adjudication and fees. Brief footnotes and a table of cases will be retained for those who may wish to investigate further.
