Construction claims have a language and procedures of their own. A party to a construction dispute must elect between inconsistent claims, defences, and remedies. An uninformed choice or failure to pursue a particular remedy or a particular defence can be a costly mistake. The aim of this book is to explain the choices which are available. The book covers differences between arbitration, litigation, adjudication, and expert determination; legal categories of claim and unjust enrichment; ambit claims, global claims, and the total cost claim; two categories of quantum meruit; liquidated damages, nominal damages, and Hungerford's damages; flaws in the Hudson Formula, prevention principle, and red hand rule; causation and foreseeability; defences, estoppel, time bars, and accord and satisfaction; and claim preparation costs and Calderbank offers. The most significant change in this edition reflects the past decades' shift away from arbitration and litigation and towards adjudication.
