Summary

Very few books explore the problems which are particular to the relationship between Specialist Contractors and the Main Contractor, or Clients with whom they are in contract. Fewer still provide solutions in such a down to earth no-nonsense way as The Streetwise Subbie does.

The Streetwise Subbie is a highly regarded practical guide to contractual matters. Its original author Jack Russell was well known for his ‘contractual terrier’ column in Electrical Times. Now, Barry Ashmore has updated and revised this work by drawing on his 46 years of construction experience and professional expertise gained at the sharp end resolving disputes and solving contractual problems for Specialist Contractors.

Thousands of subbies have already benefited from the insights and the streetwise approach to avoiding or resolving contractual problems, and the clarity of thought and advice the book provides. The fourth edition features all the old favourites such as payment, delay and disruption, extension of time and the all-important checklists and site records. But it has now been brought bang up to date to reflect the importance of the 2011 revisions to the Construction Act and the emergence of adjudication as the pre-eminent means of dispute resolution.

It is an easy to read, practical, and essential guide, aimed at Specialist Contractors of all sizes and specialisations, be they sole traders, company directors, or any member of the subbie’s team that has to handle the commercial and contractual aspects of the projects they undertake.

It’s the kind of book that you keep handy, because it has so many answers that you can refer to it over and over again.
