Civil Engineering Contractual Procedures gives an introduction to the contractual procedures, legislation and administrative practices that are used in the civil engineering industry. It introduces the principles of contract law, and the main forms of contract used in the construction industry. It then concentrates on the main forms of contract used in civil engineering, with the discussion based on the ICE Conditions of Contract. It looks at the obligations of the various parties to the contract under all the clauses of the contract. The book follows the same style as its companion volume, Contractual Procedures in the Construction Industry. It is split into five main sections: contract law, procurement, organisation and procedures, ICE Conditions of Contract, and other conditions of contract. The latter section includes a brief commentary on forms of contract such as the main government form (GC/Works/1), the FCEC form of subcontract and other ICE forms. It concludes with appendices covering issues such as relevant statues and engineer's instructions.
Civil Engineering Contractual Procedures provides a sound basis for anyone seeking an understanding of the contractual administration of civil engineering projects. It is an essential core text for all students of civil engineering and related courses at both undergraduate and higher technician levels. It will also be a useful reference source for those already working in the industry.
