This book analyses and comments on the JCT Standard Form of Building Contract, 1998 edition, on a clause-by-clause basis. It has been fully updated to reflect the changes made since the 1980 edition, including the changes brought about by the new practice directions, and the substantial development in the area of dispute resolution.

A new background section describes the recent history of the JCT, and in particular the developments since Latham and Egan. This edition also introduces a table of cases, and features legal cases and precedents, emphasising the recent case law.
