The obligations and duties of the Employer and the Engineer are identified and discussed, while potential pitfalls are highlighted and likely consequences pointed out. Included in the guide are a number of appendices, including model letters which will be of value to less experienced staff. Essential reading for engineers, quantity surveyors and project managers.
