The Law and Management of Building Subcontracts, Second Edition


There are probably 20-25 subcontracts entered into for every major building contract. However, despite this, there are relatively few books that discuss the problems particular to the subcontract relationship between main contracts and their subcontractors.

This book examines the main issues that lead to disputes between contractors and subcontractors, identifies relevant law, including decisions of the courts, and also provides a view as to how other issues might be decided.

The second edition has been extensively revised to cover all the 2005 JCT subcontracts and works contracts, and recent case law. Four new chapters have been added on subcontractors selected by thrid parties; organisation of the subcontract; sub-subcontracts; and works contracts under management contracting arrangements.

It draws on the author’s extensive experience of managing building subcontracts, as well as his involvement in handling over 130 adjudications.Content:
