The Joint Contracts Tribunal issued a new Design and Build Form in2005, a successor to the JCT Standard Form of Building Contractwith Contractor’s Design. It looks substantially differentfrom its predecessor and it is different in structure and often inits wording.

This major new edition of David Chappell’s well regardedbook has been substantially revised to take account of the newcontract terms and different structure. It also considers:

  • the latest RIBA Terms of Engagement
  • the standard novation agreements from the CIC and City ofLondon Law Society
  • More than 70 additional cases

It discusses areas where problems frequently arise:

  • the allocation of design responsibility
  • discrepancies
  • the role of the employer’s agent
  • payment provisions
  • the approval of drawings

The book will be useful for contractors, for professionalsacting as employer’s agent, whether architect, engineer orsurveyor, and for the design team acting for the contractor. Itwill also be of interest to employers embarking on design and buildfor the first time and to lawyers.

From reviews of the last edition:

"an authoritative guide to case law [this book] is also unafraid ofcontroversy… it remains an enjoyable and essential read forprofessionals and lawyers involved in design andbuild" –Building

"David Chappell’s knowledge of his subject is encyclopaedic,but allied to an ability to explain difficult questions in anaccessible format." –Construction Law
