Delay and disturbance during construction have always been critical issues in every construction project. Delay and Disruption in Construction Contracts, now in its fifth edition, is the leading guide to these frequently difficult and potentially expensive concerns.

This book offers information on how to address delay and interruption at every step of a project, from conception through completion and beyond:

  • An worldwide advisory board of expert editors
  • An examination of the legislation in this area in England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and the United States.
  • Standard forms from the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, and New Zealand are discussed and compared.
  • New sections on the civil law dynamic, BIM, and adjudication have been included.
  • New appendices on the SCL Protocol and the technique of choice for delay analysis
  • Over 100 textual "Illustrations" relate directly to ideas described in the book, resulting in fully updated case law.
  • Customized diagrams that may be downloaded as a digital file to help in the explanation of complex subjects

This book tackles the issue of delay and interruption in a manner that is both practical and intellectually sound. As a result, each lawyer, project manager, architect, contractor, or academic working in the building sector should have a copy on hand.
