    Review quote
    Fenwick Elliott's Dictionary of Construction Terms offers clear and concise explanations of the most commonly encountered legal and technical terms, phrases and abbreviations used in the English language throughout the construction industry. It includes a list of common technical acronyms (ie. DPC, DPM, FFL) as well as lists of acronyms of common institutions such as the ICE, JCT and ACE. Although focused on an English law approach with respect to legal or semi-legal terms, it remains a valuable reference tool for all construction lawyers, practitioners and students, as well as those in related industries including planning, property and insurance. - 31 ASA BULLETIN 2/2013 (June)
