This book is a valuable reference for all those involved with the implementation, management and maintenance of landscape works using Standard Forms of Contract, whether they are designers, managers, contract administrators, contractors or clients. The book also covers the whole of the syllabus for Part C of the Landscape Institute's Pathway to Chartership.
It covers from the preparation of tender documents to contract completion for both landscape construction and maintenance works, including the types of contract and Standard Forms available, which contract to chose in different circumstances, and construction using sub-contracts or main contracts. It also includes consideration in detail of the provisions in the JCLI Landscape Works Contracts and the JCLI Landscape Maintenance Works Contract and the respective duties, obligations and powers of the Contract Administrator, Contractor and Employer in practical detail for these Contracts.
Written by an author with forty years of experience in landscape design, including fifteen years of drafting JCLI standard forms, Landscape Contracts is a valuable educational resource for those teaching and studying to be landscape architects, landscape managers, garden designers or landscape contractors.
