Although the legal principles involved in construction contracts and their management and administration are an aspect of general contract law, the practical and commercial complexities of the construction industry have increasingly made this a specialist field. Recognizing this, Construction Contracts is a fully revised edition of the UK's leading textbook on the law governing this area. Brought up to date with recent cases and developments in the law as it stands at July 2000, this new edition: takes full account of the effects of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, the Arbitration Act 1996, the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 and the changes in the legal system brought about by the Woolf reforms includes extended coverage of financial protection, construction insurance and tendering controls, as well as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations has been revised to take account of changes to the common standard-form contracts, particularly the New Engineering Contract and the GC/Works family of contracts. Retaining the same basic approach as its successful predecessors, this important text introduces the general principles that underlie contracts in construction, illustrating them by reference to the most important standard forms currently in use.

In the early 1990s, UK experienced a recession which led to massive job losses and insolvency of businesses, particularly in the construction sector. This state of affairs triggered the UK Government to enact the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (Construction Act) and Part 1 of The Scheme for Construction Contracts (England and Wales) Regulations 1998 which came into force on 1 May 1998. This Act and its Scheme introduce a system to facilitate prompt payment to affected parties in the construction industry and a mechanism to resolve disputes speedily through statutory adjudication. Similar Acts soon emerged in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore to address acute cash flow problems in their industry. In Malaysia, an Act referred to as the Construction Industry Payment and Adjudication Act (CIPA Act) has been recently passed in May of 2012 to address the issues of payment and dispute settlement in the construction industry. This Act is expected to be in force early of 2013. During the drafting of its Act, Malaysia have the options to choose between the contrasting models from other jurisdictions, to learn from the mistakes made, and to pick and integrate the best practices under each model to produce a scheme acceptable by the participants in the construction industry. The CIPA Act 2012 is observed to be akin to the Construction Act in the UK. However, different from the UK Act which include issues other than payment, the CIPA 2012 confined the law to regulate payment issue and the introduction of statutory adjudication as a mechanism to resolve the issues. With reference to the UK Construction Act and equivalent Acts in other jurisdictions and legal principles derived from the UK precedents, this study intends to contribute and extend towards a basic cognizance and an appreciation of the concept of disputes and its causes and of the different forms of dispute resolution available for the construction industry, analyse the statutory adjudication mechanism in the UK Construction Act, in its Scheme, and in other legislation, derive the guiding principles from UK court decisions, and identify areas that have been and have not been addressed by the CIPA Act. It further intends to propose several mechanisms to ensure statutory adjudication meets its objective and to highlight other avenues available to resolve disputes. It is hope that this study will be able to lend some support and guidance to those who would be directly involved in the construction sector and will be able to assists policy makers to address the issues of concern that were not dealt by the CIPA Act in the event the Act undergoes a review on its efficacy in the future.
