This thesis investigated the legal criteria involved in resolving defective specification disputes. Appellate case law was researched to discover the rules used by the court systems to decide cases involving defective specifications. These rules were organized in flowchart form to provide a guide for construction contract administrators. Separate flow charts were prepared for method and performance specifications, and the differences between the two types of specifications were discussed. Appellate court cases were used to illustrate how the courts have interpreted and applied the legal rules in construction contract disputes. The differences between defective specifications and differing site conditions were also investigated. A discussion of the significant differences was provided to assist construction professionals in distinguishing the two dispute situations.
