A gap has long existed between construction professionals (such as architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, mechanical and electrical engineers, environmental consultants and others) and the property development process. The underlying development structures, expressed in terms of legal obligation and accountability, are all too little understood. This practical guide by a highly experienced lawyer identifies the role of the professional in its wider context, and looks beyond their relationship with their immediate employer. This encourages them to appreciate the concerns and interests of people such a joint venture partners, bankers, funders, landowners with an interest is the outcome, and tenants. The development professional needs to understand the pattern or web of relationships between a variety of principals, both in terms of contractual obligation and duty of care.

Somewhere over the Everglades, the airplane's engine failed and Dex Lassiter plummeted into the swamp's murky depths. Amber Callahan didn't expect to find any survivors in the wreckage, but Dex was about as tough as they came. And too smart not to dig into why a woman like her had run away to settle in remote Mystic Glades. Or why a killer circled their every move.
As floodwaters rose, deputising Dex was just what this lawless small town needed. Because escape wasn't possible. And the only thing Dex did better than starting things was defending them.

Technical innovation in industry is regarded by many people as the best way of making industry more profitable. A great deal of energy and time is being expended by businessmen and by governments discussing how best to bring about technical innovation. This book, which was first published in 1987, argues that all concerned with technical innovation should bear in mind the importance of 'networks'. 'Networks' are defined as the web of contacts which exist between suppliers, customers, and producers in industry. Drawing on extensive original research, the book discusses the need for co-ordinating technical research and development with suppliers and customers and examines in detail how this should best be done. This book is ideal for students of business and economics.
