Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The first two parts deal with procurement issues, tendering and placing the contract. The former concentrates on current trends and provides a good overview of this area. The latter aspects are very thoroughly covered. There is an apparent "engineering" bias with an element of emphasis on joint venture procurement, as such, could be recommended as further reading for final year undergraduate and post-graduate students and practitioners.' Building Engineer
Booknews
A practical guide for purchasers and contractors. Covers contracts for the construction of buildings and civil engineering works, the supply and installation of mechanical, electrical, and process plants, and for computer system and facilities management. Methods of contracting, including PFI schemes, are critically examined and reference is made to the UK's latest thinking on prime contracting. Deals with both the preparation and the appraisal of tenders and explains in detail how to draft key clauses in a contract to ensure the maximum advantage. This fifth edition reflects recent changes in case law and legislation, and charts changes to model forms of contract conditions. Marsh is a retired solicitor and a consultant. Annotation c.
