“The chapters examine the construction contract from cradle to completion, offering the best practices in the law. This unique book will be of enormous assistance to legal practitioners and law students while serving as a useful practical compendium to construction industry professionals including project managers, consultants, financiers, insurers and subcontractors.

I would unreservedly recommend this tome of fine work as a valuable and indispensable guide and reference to the practitioners of this industry and to those wondering if they ought to embrace it.”

From the Foreword by Dato’ Mary Lim Thiam Suan
Judge of the Federal Court of Malaysia

The phenomenon of construction is an ancient one. Civilisation is built on bricks, concrete, mortar, and steel. As new technologies emerge in this area, so, too, has the law evolved to stay abreast. This book is a collaborative effort between professionals whose respective involvement in the legal and practical aspects of construction in Malaysia is brought to bear in this addition to the Malaysian Practice Series.

The result of their collaboration is a nuanced, balanced and detailed coverage of the most essential topics in construction law and practice, including construction procurement and contracts, design and supervision obligations, quality and defect obligations, variation and extension of time, termination of construction contracts, and the application of the COVID-19 Act 2020 to the construction industry.

The book considers and analyses various standard forms commonly adopted in the Malaysian construction industry. Key cases are presented in the form of illustrations which seek to present essential principles in an easily digestible form. The book is invaluable to all legal professionals engaged in the practice of construction law as well as construction professionals in Malaysia and contains discussion of current Malaysian cases and applicable statutes.
