This thesis is an investigation of current practice in respect of risk apportioning in engineering and building construction contracts in Australia. The thesis details a study conducted on 50 industry contracts that, through an examination of risk provisions, determined that a high level of risk shifting was being practised in the engineering and building construction industries in Australia. A comparative study on North American experience was also reviewed to gain an understanding of the broad extent of such practice. The thesis also reviews current literature on this topic and provides a brief summary of literature items found to be particularly relevant to the study undertaken.
