Fiber Optic Telecommunications Networks: Construction Contracts

Price: $297 PDF

Meet The Author


This publication by James Booth on fiber optic telecommunications networks, published by Pike & Fischer and available exclusively through Bloomberg BNA in PDF format, will assist owners and contractors in preparing clear and viable contracts for the construction of elements of telecommunications systems. The author discusses the important elements of a construction contract from both the owner’s perspective and the contractor’s perspective, and offers alternate clauses to suit the varying needs of individual owners and contractors.

The publication covers both “inside plant” components (i.e., those parts of a network that are constructed within a building) and “outside plant” components (those that are constructed out-of-doors). The key elements of fiber optic construction agreements—from achieving clarity in describing the work to be performed to providing fairness and security in the termination clause—are covered in clear, easy-to-adopt text and incisive explanatory comments. Alternate clauses differentiated by bold and italic type are provided to cover the individual circumstances facing the contracting parties.
