In Construction Contract Law, Adriaanse tackles the key aspects of this subject with total clarity and precision.

The book first examines the nature of construction contracts and then takes the reader through each aspect of the construction process, explaining its significance to the practice of contract law and the reasoning behind it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, informative and easy to read 9 Mar 2005
This book deals with a difficult topic in a forthright and direct way. It tells you what you need to know in a manner that is easy to take in whilst comprehensively explaining the subject matter.
I've read a lot of law books in my time, and wish this had been written sooner!!

2.0 out of 5 stars A book for students 10 April 2012
By Gibbo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a practising contract administrator and building surveyor I was looking for a good reference book to keep on my shelf. However this book seemed to be heavily tailored towards students and was rather vague on a number of subject areas. Returned to Amazon thanks to their returns system.
