Assessing Loss and Expense explains to architects and other construction industry professionals in accessible language how to assess the quantum value of loss and expense claims arising from projects.
The book allows architects, assessors and others to understand the principles of evaluation themselves so that they can undertake assessments safely, spending as little time on them as possible – leaving more time for the project at hand.
In a market which is seeing an ever-increasing number of claims, this guide shows that architects and others need not become nervous or fearful when they receive a claim. It guides them calmly through what they need to do, demystifying the process and showing modern court-tested techniques, explaining what adjudicators/judges expect from the claimant.
The book also describes the nuances of loss and expense in other countries (ME, Far East, Africa) and any effect this may have on assessment.
