From the cover: “This manual is intended for everyone professionally involved in the landscape industry: for landscape architects, local authority parks administrators, landscape contractors, surveyors and nurserymen.
Most landscape professionals know their own duties and responsibilities in detail; few know as much about those of their clients, customers or suppliers. The purpose of this book is to explain the best practice and procedure and so ensure the satisfactory completion of landscape contracts, large or small, public or private.
The author, Hugh Clamp, is a Senior Partner of Manning and Clamp and Partners, the Richmond firm of architects and landscape consultants. He was, for twelve years, one of the RIBA representatives on the Joint Contracts Tribunal and has chaired the JCLI Contracts Subcommittee since 1977. His experience of private practice and of contract drafting makes this book an ideal mix of down-to-earth experience and an industry-wide overview.”
