Four entirely new case studies covering various types of project and illustrating different kinds of claim
Updated case law and reference to recent changes in the law
Extended treatment of planning and programming, delay analysis and protocols, and global and total loss claims.

It is an essential guide for engineers, project managers, construction managers, surveyors, and other professionals working in the construction industry, and will also be a valuable reference tool for students.
