Construction law is a branch of law that deals with matters relating to building construction , engineering , and related fields. It is in essence an amalgam of contract law , commercial law , planning law , employment law and tort. Construction law covers a wide range of legal issues including contract, negligence, bonds and bonding , guarantees and sureties , liens and other security interests, tendering, construction claims, and related consultancy contracts. Construction law affects many participants in the construction industry, including financial institutions , surveyors , quantity surveyors , architects , builders , engineers , construction workers , and planners. Construction law builds upon general legal principles and methodologies and incorporates the regulatory framework including security of payment, planning, environmental and building regulations ; contract methodologies and selection including traditional and alternative forms of contracting ; subcontract issues; causes of action , and liability, arising in contract, negligence and on other grounds; insurance and performance security; dispute resolution and avoidance. Construction law has evolved into a practice discipline in its own right, distinct from its traditional locations as a subpractice of project finance , real estate or corporate law.
