This dictionary is intended to be a quick reference originally for terms which appear in construction contracts and in matters arising from construction claims. This new second edition has seen a 20% expansion in the number of entries but retains the coverage as originally envisaged for this work.

Having been cited in a number of leading decisions relating to contract formation, delays, frustration and performance bonds in Singapore and Malaysia, this dictionary consists of a readily accessible A – Z glossary of definitions of construction contract terms arising from the business side of contracting as well as technical and engineering terms where these have not been defined in codes of practice or industrial standards used in the industry, with over 100 new entries:

  • terms and expressions encountered in relevant statutes and standard forms; 
  • common technical terms found in contract documents; 
  • terms applied in leading construction decisions; and 
  • terms and expressions encountered in construction arbitration and adjudication.

It also includes key feature like footnotes that complement many of the entries to facilitate reference to authorities, source documents and other instructive reference materials.

Construction Contracts Dictionary has received outstanding reviews as an unrivalled compendium for owners, contractors, architects, quantity surveyors, engineers, project managers, contract administrators and other members of the construction professions.
