  • Convenient source of information for lawyers, practitioners and students
  • Includes a list of common technical acronyms (ie. DPC, DPM, FFL)
  • Lists acronyms of common institutions such as the ICE, JCT and ACE

Examples of definitions:

Modular construction

A modern construction method whereby the building is constructed using prefabricated or pre-assembled building sections or modules. The three-dimensional building sections are typically fabricated and assembled in an enclosed factory environment and then delivered to site, ready for installation. Modular construction is aimed at minimising construction time by standardising design components, providing consistent quality and allowing site preparation and building activities to commence concurrently with the construction of the factory-made modules.

Snagging

The process of formally inspecting the construction works to identify any incomplete works or defects in completed works. A snagging list (or ?punch list?) is a schedule of defects resulting from this inspection. These items typically need to be rectified prior to the issuing of a completion certificate or handing-over of the works although in some cases a completion certificate will be issued with a snagging list attached.
