Overview

"This book provides over 300 standard letters for architects and contract administrators to use at all stages of contract administration. The letters are grouped into sections which correspond with the RIBA Plan of Work: the aim is to cover all the common situations encountered in practice. This Fourth Edition has been revised to take account of the extensive changes to virtually the whole of the JCT suite of building contracts." Architects and contract administrators spend a great deal of time writing letters of various types. Many of them are routine and repetitive in character, but they require proper consideration if potentially dangerous liability situations are to be avoided. The book will be of use not only to architects and contract administrators but also to project managers and employers' agents.
