The topics in the book are organized in the same manner as they would actually arise in a construction project. First, the book deals with pre-construction issues licensing, bidding, and the formation of the construction contract. It then discusses what happens when things go wrong with breach of contract by the owner and/or the contractor. An in-depth analysis is provided with regard to claims involving delay, disruption, and acceleration. Several chapters are then devoted to statutory remedies-mechanics' liens, stop notices, and bonds both on public and private works. Finally, coverage is provided on other issues and subjects involving the construction industry, including expanding liability, home improvement contracts, bankruptcy, and alternative dispute resolution.
