This book will be valuable both to lawyers with limited experience in handling construction matters and to seasoned construction law specialists. Lawyers looking for an introduction to this highly specialized area of practice will benefit from the breadth of coverage given to the fundamentals of both construction law and construction industry customs and practices. They will also be pleased to have advice from Arkansas construction law experts on many practical points. Experienced construction lawyers will be delighted to finally have a resource that discusses in detail the nuances of Arkansas law on such esoteric topics as licensing, bidding, bonds, liens, damages, and public contracts, along with extensive citations and discussions of the Arkansas statutes and cases relating to each of the topics the manual covers. The Introduction acquaints the reader with different construction terms and concepts, describes the construction industry players, process, and relationships, and ends with an overview of the manual’s topics. The book then follows the sequence of the construction process from Contractor Licensing Requirements (Chapter 2) through Professional Liability (Chapter 14). Chapter 3 describes the construction bidding process followed by a discussion of the law relating to surety bonds in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 gives an important discussion regarding insurance—policies and coverages. The next chapters review the prevalent problems caused by construction change orders and project delays (Chapters 6 and 7), both of which often result in contract claims and damages, the topics of Chapters 8 and 9. Chapter 10 analyzes Arkansas law regarding mechanic and materialman’s liens. Chapter 11 explains the big differences between the statute of repose and the statute of limitations and the applications of each. Next, Chapter 12 examines alternative dispute resolution clauses often included in standard construction contracts. The final two chapters, Public Contracts and Professional Liability (Chapters 13 and 14), provide analysis and insight regarding Arkansas public contracts and the professional responsibilities and liabilities of architects, engineers and construction supervisors.”
