Project financing and construction law are relatively young, highly specialised areas of legal practice. They are intrinsically functional and pragmatic and require the combination of a multitask group of professionals – owners, contractors, bankers, insurers, brokers, architects, engineers, geologists, surveyors, public authorities and lawyers – each bringing their own knowledge and perspective to the table. This edition features two new articles – this time from non-lawyers – specifically prepared for the introductory part of this book. The first proposes to us ‘A Guide to Alternate Project Delivery Systems’ and the second demonstrates some innovative approaches to spatially enabling land administration and management.
Although there is an increased perception that project financing and construction law are global issues, the local flavour offered by leading experts in 31 countries has shown us that in order to understand the world we must first make sense of what happens locally; to further advance our understanding of the law, we must resist the modern view (and vice?) that all that matters is global and what is regional is of no importance.
