Making Partnering Work in the Construction Industry
Written by the world famous lawyer Julian Critchlow, this book takes a balanced and pragmatic approach in trying to fill the gap of practical information on implementing partnering in the construction industry. Partnering is the radical new approach designed to reduce disputes in the construction industry. The book begins by considering the nature of partnering in the construction industry and what distinguishes it from other approaches. Importantly, it evaluates partnering in terms of both advantages and disadvantages. After a section on what partnering is, the bulk of the book explores the central issue of how partnering may be implemented and the potential implications. The potential impact of both domestic and European Union legislation on partnering agreements is also examined. Chapters include: the nature of partnering and general contractual issues; the case for partnering; strategic partnering; project partnering; the impact of regulations; a sample project partnering charter; sample framework Partnering Agreement; table of statutes and cases.
