In 2007, PAM introduced the PAM 2006 Forms as drafted by the PAM Contract Review Committee. It is not disputed that the PAM 2006 Forms significantly change the way the risks for time, money matters, quality issues and dispute resolution are allocated between the contractor, employer and consultant team. The Forms are also more procedural, requiring the contractor, employer and consultants to strictly adhere to time provisions with the attendant loss of rights or incurring of liabilities. The Forms were made available for use in 2008.
The earlier books on the PAM/ISM 1969 Form by the late Professor Vincent Powell-Smith and the PAM 1998 Form by Mr. Sundra Rajoo have been well received. This book expands on the approach of the earlier two books to produce a new book which combines an exposition of the modern law in relation to construction together with a commentary on the relevant contract conditions. This work is intended to stimulate debate and alert users in the building industry to the changes brought about by the PAM 2006 Form. It is not a mere commentary but is comprehensive enough to cover issues of construction law arising thereof.
As such, the book critically examines by way of practical overview and judicial principles, the notable revisions that have been undertaken, the plus points of such revisions, the apparent deficiencies and drawbacks in practice, foreseeable areas of contention and possible improvements. It sets out the applicable general principles of construction law, a description of how the provision is anticipated to work in practice and wherever possible, provides concrete examples arising from case law.
