Hudson’s Building and Engineering Contracts, 14th Edition, combines a well-established and much-trusted guide to the law around construction contracts with new cases, discussions and updates. An authority cited in court for more than a century, it provides in depth coverage of difficult and important construction problems based on long practical experience and on the learning of courts in many different jurisdictions.

  • An in-depth explanation and interpretation of the law relating to construction contracts
  • The issues arising from the provisions in common use in bespoke contracts and in all key standard construction contracts
  • The leading UK cases, significant and illuminating cases from commonwealth jurisdictions, and important decisions not reported elsewhere
  • Influential discussions of significant construction law problems
  • The ambiguities and technicalities often arising over interpretation and application of contracts
New to this 14th edition:
  • A reconsideration of the law on penalties since different jurisdictions have reacted to the House of Lords decision in Cavendish v Makdessi.
  • A revised analysis of the implied obligations of contractors and employers, including development of good faith obligations in the UK and elsewhere.
  • A new summary of insurance that is relevant to construction.
  • An extensive updating of adjudication cases in a dozen jurisdictions.
  • A new analysis of quality obligations.
  • A discussion of quantum meruit recovery on termination in the light of the High Court of Australia’s decision in Mann v Paterson.
