International Construction Contract Law (PDF) ebook is written for anyone who needs to understand the legal and managerial aspects of very large international construction projects, including but not limited to consulting engineers, clients, lawyers, developers, contractors and construction managers worldwide. In 18 chapters it provides a thorough overview of common law /civil law interrelationships, standard forms of contract, delivery methods, variations, risk allocation, claims and dispute resolution, all in the context of international construction projects. Highly practical in approach – it introduces legal analysis only when absolutely essential to understanding, the ebook also contains a range of useful appendices, including a 10-language basic dictionary of terms used in FIDIC forms.
Big international construction projects often have a range of major subcontractors, contractors and consultants based in different parts of the world and working to different legal understandings and theories. This can lead to confusion in the understanding, interpretation and execution of the construction contract, which can result in significant disruption to the construction project.
