Synopsis

This book examines the design and build (D&B) method of procurement in the construction industry: its strengths, weaknesses and idiosyncrasies. Crucially, case studies of D&B projects on which the author has worked are included. The book begins by looking at the reasons for the increasing interest in D&B; it then examines the basic components and principles of D&B, covering such issues as what is a D&B contract, the level and scope of liabilities, hybrids - what do they really mean and how many of them are there (design, manage, construct etc.)? Chapters include: the basic principles; the basic law; legal and practical pitfalls; the role of the professionals; novation; extra contractual protections; subcontractors and suppliers; health and safety; D&B in housing and urban regeneration; D&B in commercial/complex projects; D&B on contaminated land; D&B and partnering; D&G and the public finance initiative; JCT 81 amendment 12; appendix - D&B standard forms.
