This essential book is an authoritative and practical guide to the law concerning engineering contracts in Scotland. Although Scotland is well served with texts on construction law in general, to date little space has been devoted to engineering contracts, which form a separate and specialised area of law. This book redresses the balance. It mainly covers ICE contracts, but, where relevant, also comments on and compares MF/1, NEC, FIDIC and IChemE.
While in most instances engineering contracts are clearly drafted, such contracts always have to be read against the ever-growing background of case law. This book provides a clear statement of the legal position, with links to the relevant cases, so that readers can pursue these points further.
The use of legal jargon has been avoided, where possible, and in its place are useful explanations of legal concepts supported by summaries, checklists and flowcharts. This unique and comprehensive book is a practical working tool for the engineering professional.
