Engineering Contracts is intended for those who wish to acquire skills in drafting, negotiating and working with commercial and engineering contracts. It aims to bring a different approach to the subject; combining the traditional legal perspective of the law of contract with the needs of the commercial manager or engineer who is seeking solutions to technical and commercial problems. The context within which these matters are examined is as wide as possible; for the purposes of illustration cases are drawn from the fields of mechanical, electrical, chemical, electronic and civil engineering, as well as from construction and building contracts. In many cases the important points are common to all disciplines, for instance the importance of ensuring that what has been specified is what is delivered by a supplier, and that any such delivery or indeed any event critical to the timely conclusion of a project takes place when arranged. There is advice on how to the concepts broached relate to real-life requirements and the reader will benefit from the helpful 'Legal Questions Answered' section that is included in most chapters. In addition there is a summary guide to drafting an engineering contract, a section on the relevant statutes and other legislation in force, and a list of the engineering institutions and their standard forms of contract. Case-studies of genuine and practical origin from the author's wide-ranging experience in industrial practice complete this comprehensive treatment of the subject matter.
The focus of this manual is not what provisions to include in a given contract, but instead how to express those provisions in prose that is free ofthe problems that often afflict contracts.
Civil Engineering Contracts: Practice and Procedure, Second Edition explains the contract procedures used in civil engineering projects. Topics covered include types of contract in civil engineering, general conditions of contract, insurances, and tender procedures. The powers, duties, and functions of the engineer and his representative are also considered. This book is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with an overview of the philosophy underlying the contract system in civil engineering, followed by a discussion on the promotion of civil engineering works. The reader is then introduced to types of civil engineering contracts; contract risk and contract responsibility; the application of contract documents; and general conditions of contract. The remaining chapters focus on contract specifications; bill of quantities and methods of measurement; principles and types of insurance; procedures for competitive bids or tenders; cost estimates, methods of pricing, and rate fixing; and claims on civil engineering contracts. The final chapter is devoted to arbitration and related procedure for the settlement of contract disputes. This monograph will be useful to practicing civil engineers who are involved with contract administration and to younger engineers who are aspiring to obtain professional qualifications.
