Practical Guide to Engineering and Construction Contracts
Philip Loots and Donald Charrett (2009) CCH
This hardcover book of 450 pages is a concise practical guide to the law relating to construction contracts in Australia. It is written for end users working at the “coalface” negotiating and administering construction contracts, and the book does not assume any prior formal knowledge of the law of contracts. It assists readers to understand the risks associated with these contracts and how to minimise them. In the Foreword, John Sharkey AO notes: “It will take its place among the accepted texts in construction law in this country and will, I am sure, prove of immeasurable assistance to those charged with the design and supervision of commercial construction projects. [General Sir John] Monash would have valued it.”
