Abstract

This book deals with the law and the relevant doctrines in relation to understanding, drafting and analysing construction global claims. In general, contract law in relation to agreement, offer and acceptance and consideration, vitiating doctrines that can re-ender a contract void or annulled and general disputes are explained as they are the fundamental essence of all claims. The author will emphasis not on just presenting any claim as a global claim, which will shift the burden of proof on the client, but to analyse disputes configurations, damages quantum and mitigation measures to start the initialisation of preparing a global claim. It is, therefore, a practical guide to construction professionals in order to build on the legal aspects of time and cost-related issues and delays and disruptions provisions in order to understand and substantiate these types of claims. A case study is included in this book that takes the reader step by step in fully presenting a global claim using the total cost method. This case study is presented in detail to provide professionals the structure and reasoning of how to present global claims and apply the modified total cost method to alleviate some of the limitations of a globally presented claim.
