Building Contract Dictionary – 3rd Edition : David Chappell, Derek Marshall, Vincent Powell-Smith, Simon Cavender

Review of Building Contract Dictionary – 3rd Edition

The book is written in a non–legal and highly–readable manner and is a very useful reference for Architects, Surveyors or other construction professional. The Book provides a reference to words, phrases and terms encountered in and in connection with Construction and construction contracts. It is based primarily on the British Contracts and Legal System but remains relevant in respect of Malaysian Contracts and Legal System which adopts many of the same principles in both Law and Contract. At the moment this book fills a void with its only competition being in the form of the Penguin Dictionary of Building, Civil Engineering and Architecture which is nowhere near as comprehensive and more of a general construction dictionary.
