Towns are complicated places. It is therefore not surprising that from the beginnings of urban development, towns and town life have been regulated. Whether the basis of regulation was imposed or agreed, ultimately it was necessary to have a law-based system to ensure that disagreements could be arbitrated upon and rules obeyed. The literature on urban regulation is dispersed about a large number of academic specialisms. However, for the most part, the interest in urban regulation is peripheral to some other core study and, consequently, there are few texts which bring these detailed studies together. This book provides perspectives across the period between the high medieval and the end of the nineteenth century, and across a geographical breadth of European countries from Scandinavia to the southern fringes of the Mediterranean and from Turkey to Portugal. It also looks at the way in which urban regulation was transferred and adapted to the colonial empires of two of those nations.
In countries such as the UK, the energy used in constructing, occupying and operating buildings represents approximately fifty percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Pressure to improve the environmental performance of buildings during both construction and occupancy, particularly to reduce carbon emissions from buildings, has become intense. Understandably, legislation and regulation are driving green development and compliance. And this is happening in a wide variety of ways. This review of the law in key jurisdictions for the research community, lawyers, the construction industry and government examines some of the mechanisms in place - from the more traditional building regulation controls to green leases and the law relating to buildings and their natural environment. Members of the CIB TG69 research group on 'Green Buildings and the Law' review aspects of the law relating to green development in a range of jurisdictions.

FIDIC contracts are the most widely used contracts for international construction around the world and are used in many different jurisdictions, both common law and civil law. For any construction project, the General Conditions of Contract published by FIDIC need to be supplemented by Particular Conditions that specify the specific requirements of that project. The International Application of FIDIC Contracts: A Practical Guide provides readers with detailed guidance and resources for the preparation of the Particular Conditions that will comply with the requirements of the applicable laws that apply to the site where the work is carried out, and for the governing law of the contract, for a number of the jurisdictions in which FIDIC contracts are used. This book is essential reading for construction professionals, lawyers and students of construction law.
Now in a fully updated third edition, The Law of Construction Disputes is a leading source of authoritative and detailed information on the whole area of construction law including contracts and their performance, third parties, pursuing claims and dispute resolution. It covers the construction dispute process by analysing the main areas from which disputes arise, up to date case law, and how to effectively deal with construction project disputes once they have arisen. Now including references to the new FIDIC contracts, which were released in 2017, this edition expands on advanced practitioner issues, as well as the emerging law of construction disputes on an international basis and gives the practitioner all the case law needed in one concise volume. The book examines the methods and methodology of construction law, not only for a common law context, but also under other legal systems. Readers will be guided through the various international contract formats governing construction, alongside applicable case law. Additionally, they will be shown the correct contract provisions and forms used to prevent disputes from escalating in order to reach successful conclusions without litigation. Including expert advice and many relevant reference materials, this book is an extremely helpful guide to legal practitioners and construction professionals.
