This book aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the subject and reinforces the changes that are taking place within the construction industry, such as how it is organised and the way in which consultants, contractors, subcontractors and all of those involved in the supply chain obtain work.

This book, now in its sixth edition, is an indispensible companion for students taking undergraduate courses in Building and Surveying, Quantity Surveying, Construction Management, and Project Management. It is also suitable for students on HND/C courses in Building and Construction Management as well as foundation degree courses in Building and Construction Management.

New content includes: A new chapter has been added on Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and the Private Finance Initiative. A revised section of the book now deals with generic principles about the conditions of contracts, which can be applied to all forms of contract.
