Examines the duty of good faith as an express obligation contained in the newer standard forms of construction contracts. Describes good faith provisions in other jurisdictions and the seeming hostility of the English judiciary. Discusses the benefits that might arise from “concretising” the duty of good faith in English law and encourages developments in this area.
