Those involved in construction have to cope with so much learning in their own discipline that they shun further involvement in subjects such as insurance and law which in themselves are so deeply and intensely complex. However, insurance and law are interwoven in the basic procedures used in the construction industry for undertaking work, be they design, construction, supervision or operation, or any combination of them. This thoroughly revised edition of Nael Bunni's successful book, formerly called Insurance in Construction, provides information on risk, construction law and construction insurance for those involved with all aspects of construction. The chapters on risk have been expanded to include recent developments in the area and provide further examples of events which could occur on what can be viewed as the most risky human work activity, namely construction. New chapters are also added to deal with the insurance clauses of the many new standard forms of contract published in recent years, including FIDIC's new suite of contracts published in September 1999, ICE's seventh edition of the civil engineering standard form of contract, and ICE's second edition of the design/build form.

Until now there has been little information available to engineers to help them assimilate quickly the basic theories and practice of risk management; nor has information been widely available on the risk assessments actually produced and the risk management undertaken by those working in the construction industry . Previous text books and articles on risk management have been either academic works with little practical civil engineering content or highly detailed reports which focus on specialised applications. Practical risk management in the construction industry provides engineers with an easily understandable overview of the risk management procedures that are applicable generally to commercial organizations, the risks that might arise particularly in construction and, by the use of practical examples, how those risks can be managed. The book has been divided into two sections: Part 1 provides a guide to the general principles of risk management, hazard identification assessment of probability and consequences, establishment of priorities, elimination or reduction of risks and provisions that can be made for residual risks. Part 2 describes how many of those general principles can be applied by the various parties involved in construction, e.g. clients, contractors and other professionals.

Over the past 25 years or so, the property/casualty insurance industry has confronted an onslaught of construction defect claims. Since the construction sector is a critical component of our Gross Domestic Product, it is not surprising that the impact of construction defect claims on the economy is significant. In addition, the ubiquity of these claims negatively impacts the availability and affordability of insurance, particularly for new residential construction. Managing such claims is challenging given the number of parties involved and the variety of construction contract language dealing with, among other things, indemnity obligations and insurance requirements. Risk-transfer language can be complex and has been the subject of much litigation. This handbook provides a practical and user-friendly framework for those professionals who manage construction defects. It will assist the professional's continuing learning, critical to the professional's success, and it will provide a handy reference.
