OverviewContracts are vital to the construction delivery process; they direct and govern every move. This book strips the legal mystique and jargon from contracts and exposes their basic logic. Fundamentals of Building Contract Management is presented in three parts, covering issues that arise during the three stages of contract administration: the components of contracts and methods of project delivery; tendering and sub-contracting; specific contracts and dealing with contract disputes. Fundamentals of Building Contract Management is an essential guide for tertiary students of construction management, civil engineering, building and architecture, but also covers topics that are essential for practitioners in the construction industry. It will prove an invaluable reference Australia-wide.
