Practical Construction Law and Legal Definition

Practical construction refers to a construction of a contract, which is ambiguous, in accord with the presumption that the parties contracted with reference to fair, reasonable, and practical results. It is an administrative construction of a statute enacted for the regulation of a department of government. [Bloxham v. Consumers' E. L. & S. R. Co., 36 Fla. 519 (Fla. 1895)].
