"This book combines the virtues of being a topical analysis of the practical issues that need to be resolved to making partnering work and a perceptive look into the future." - From the Foreword by His Honour Judge Humphrey Lloyd QC, Technology and Construction Court
This book seeks to bridge the gap between a purely legal view of issues raised by collaborative arrangements in the construction industry, and the practical implications and history of adopting such arrangements from an industry perspective. It addresses key industry and legal issues from a practical point of view, detailing how these issues are dealt with in the existing partnering standard form contracts, and provides an industry and historic perspective on experience to date. The book is not therefore addressed exclusively to either lawyers or construction professionals, but to anyone interested in understanding the history and practicalities of working with partnering and collaborative contracts in the field of construction procurement.
A wide range of leading industry figures have contributed chapters, including:
- Alan Crane, Chairman of Rethinking Construction
- Don Ward, Chief Executive of Collaborating for the Built Environment (Be)
- Richard Saxon, Director and former Chairman of Building Design Partnership, Chairman of Be, and a vice-president of the RIBA.
Specialist construction procurement lawyers from Hammonds have provided extensive legal commentary and analysis.
