Construction Adjudication and Payments Handbook

Oxford University Press 2013

“Given the thorough and accessible style adopted by the authors, it seems likely that this book will become indispensible for anyone in the construction industry who deals with contracts to which the Act applies.” 

Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC, TECBAR Review

“Written and compiled by four acknowledged experts whose experience and technical knowledge spans virtually all aspects of this field (including defence, energy and IT), the book also functions as a handy research resource. There are almost thirty pages of tables of cases and legislation, plus four appendices and a detailed index. Those involved in any aspect of adjudication within the construction industry, whether practitioners, adjudicators or students will find this book invaluable.”
