About

Overview

The construction industry now has a clear, targeted resource for learning pertinent legal principles. Traditional books focus on general legal principles or general construction practices, while this book focuses on that critical place where the law and construction practices intersect. From labor law to contracts, property law to insurance, Construction Law for Managers, Architects, and Engineers uses real-world examples and clear, straightforward business language to transform complex legal jargon into relevant, applicable legal principles and strategies. This book serves as an ideal reference for managers, architects, engineers, construction executives, as well as a useful learning tool for students seeking the knowledge to succeed in these important fields. Check out our app, DEWALT® Mobile Pro™. This free app is a construction calculator with integrated reference materials and access to hundreds of additional calculations as add-ons.
