Book Description: In "Construction Contracts, 2nd Edition, the most important aspects of contract administration are detailed and critical issues are supported with case/legal principles. This book was written to serve as a learning tool and a reference guide. The fundamentals of contract law are presented, along with an in-depth treatment of the construction topics which most frequently result in litigation. In addition, an overview is provided of other important construction-related topics, including the procurement process for construction contract, methods of dispute resolution, surety bonds, construction insurance, construction safety, and construction labor laws. The second edition incorporates some of the changes that have occurred during the past decade.In comparison with other books on contract, two distinguishing features of this text should become apparent. First, this text includes summaries of a large number of legal cases involving construction and discusses many topics that are germane to contract disputes. Well over 100 cases are described to help illustrate key points. The second feature not found in most texts is that many contract provisions are isolated for the reader.
