Along with several other engineers and contractors, Andrew was an early proponent of the development of a New Zealand-specific construction contract, the forerunner of NZS 3910. He was involved in developing concepts and drafts of what became NZS 3910 in 1979 and 1980. Today NZS 3910 is the most widely used standard form of contract conditions in New Zealand. Suited to New Zealand's industrial and legislative environment, NZS 3910 provides a standard form of general conditions of contract for incorporation into construction contract documents.
As an authority on construction contracting, Andrew has taught dozens of workshops for various organisations on the use of NZS 3910 and other construction contracts. He represents the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand and the Association of Consulting Engineers New Zealand on the NZS 3910 development committee that is undertaking a limited technical review of the Standard. As a leader of one of the committee's working groups, Andrew is working with other committee members to ensure that NZS 3910 continues to meet the needs of New Zealand's building and construction sector.
