A handy guide for clients, describing how to enhance the performance of the building procurement and construction processes. Written in short, easy-to-read chapters by a range of leading experts in the field of law, finance and management, it deals with 'maximising project value' or 'avoiding contractors'claims', and giving details of reducing the clients' tax burden, among other things. The architect would be doing him/herself a few favours by recommending this book to clients early on in the scheme programme.
