Sigma Wireless Communications Ltd The fi rst edition of this book, intended as a construction industry guide to the purposes and perils of liquidated damages and extensions of time, was published in The second edition followed in , by which time it had become evident that the book was also of interest to lawyers as a com-pendium of cases. In this third edition I have endeavoured to retain the original intent whilst at the same time covering in some detail new cases, of which there are many, refl ecting current approaches of the courts to various legalistic problems.
For that reason, and recognising that many readers of this book may not have ready access to court judgments or the time or incli-nation to study them in depth, the extracts I have included from the more important judgments are sometimes lengthy but hopefully no more so than suffi cient to explain their purpose. I have been surprised at the large amount of new material. The fl ow of cases seems to have risen dramatically over the past ten years or so.
One likely reason for this is that the right to adjudicate disputes has increased their volume with a corresponding increase of the follow-on work of the courts. Another likely reason is the present high standing of the Technology and Construction Court. One change to the book I have been obliged to make has been to abandon the earlier inclusion of provisions for liquidated damages and extensions of time from all well-used standard forms of construction, process and plant contracts. Such has been the multiplicity of new and amended forms in recent years that all that can be done now is to include a selection of the leading standard forms.
That change apart, the structure of the third edition is broadly the same as in previous editions. There is, however, a new chapter on delay analysis and the chapters covering penalty clauses, the effects of conditions prece-dent and time-bars, and the complexities of causation have been signifi -cantly expanded. I am indebted to many friendly lawyers for bringing cases to my attention and for providing me with transcripts of the judgments but special mention must go to Mr Neil Kelly of MacRoberts for compiling three enormous volumes of cases without which I would have struggled to produce this third edition.

Liquidated Damages and Extensions of Time In Construction Contracts 3rd Edition
There is an old saying that time is money. It certainly is in the world of busi-ness and no more so than when a construction contract overruns its allotted time for completion.

When that happens, both parties can expect to suffer. This book is essentially about how contracts deal with the fi nancial conse-quences of late completion and how, within the scope of the law and the scope of the contractual provisions, the parties endeavour to protect their respective interests. To those not deeply involved with such matters it might seem extraordi-nary that it requires a book of some magnitude to explore the full com-plexities of the subject.
To explain this conundrum this fi rst section of the book provides a general overview of the law relating to liquidated damages and extensions of time. Published by Wiley-Blackwell Seller Rating:.

Liquidated damages and extensions of time are complex subjects, frequently forming the basis of contract claims made under the standard building and civil engineering contracts.
Previous editions of Liquidated Damages and Extensions of Time are highly regarded as a guide for both construction industry professionals and lawyers to this complex area. The law on time and damages continues to develop with an increasing flow of judgments from the courts. Alongside this, the standard forms of contract have also developed over time to reflect prevailing approaches to contractual relationships. Against this background a third edition will be welcomed by construction professionals and lawyers alike.
