Construction Contract Administration for Project Owners is aimed at public and private owners of real estate and construction projects. The book is intended to assist owners in their contractual dealings with their designers and their contractors. Most owners are not primarily in the business of designing and building facilities. The fact that their primary business is not design and construction places them at a disadvantage when negotiating, drafting, and administering design agreements and construction contracts because their designers and contractors use these documents every day. This book is intended to assist owners to redress this imbalance by equipping owners to draft and administer contracts so as to protect their interests. The book is aimed at owner personnel with all levels of knowledge in the business of managing projects. It can serve as a comprehensive introduction to drafting and administering design agreements and construction contracts for beginners. For intermediate level personnel, it can serve as a manual to be read to enhance the reader’s skills in this area. For the sophisticated project management professional, it can serve as a resource to be consulted in connection with very specific issues as they arise on a project.

A contract (or an agreement) is associated with almost everything, wherein more than one person (or party) is involved. Whether it’s a marriage, purchase of a property or construction of a project, all need a proper contract and in-turn, they need resilient and robust contract administration. Today, large value and complex contracts have to cater to the needs of globalization, increased regulations and the ever-changing technologies. These complexities have contributed to an environment rendering administration of a contract difficult. Therefore, projects are prone to delays, additional unforeseen expenses and may also all-together lead to a project failure. This has also led many organizations to view a contract as a tool to have undue control by imposing rigid standards and conditions oblivious to the fact that these may not always be to their advantage. It is with this intent that this book has been written by an experienced contracts manager, who has had a first-hand experience of the struggle, while going through a jargon of clauses and documents within a contract.. The “basis of expectations” requires an overall understanding of the contract and the author expects that this book comes handy to such a professional in his/her pursuit of excellence.

Master's Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Engineering - Civil Engineering, , language: English, abstract: One of the wide ranging problems which construction industry is facing is the fluctuation in prices of construction inputs which is causing most of the projects to be completed at cost much higher than the original contract prices. In the recent past, we have seen significant price escalation occurring not only with the basic construction materials but also with the labor and fuel which creates uncertainty among the participants involved in a construction project. To overcome the effect of price fluctuations, certain methods or contract clauses are desired to deal with this uncertainty. The main purpose of the price adjustment clauses is to allow the contractors and clients to adjust the increase or decrease in prices. In addition to this, it also encourages competitive bidding. The objective of this research study is to study importance of price adjustment in construction contract and analyzing the response of the different stakeholders in construction contracts regarding FIDIC formula and suggesting for improvement. Similarly, identifying different cost element, weightings and determining contingency is also goal of research so that price adjustment contract administration becomes systematic, equitable and with less ambiguity. Recently, the price fluctuation of construction materials and services in Nepal has become severe and very much unpredictable. Most of the contractors in Construction Industry, especially local contractors, are facing strong challenges during bid process due to the high uncertainty of predicting what would happen during the course of the execution of the project. Based on the above explained fact, the research problem has been addressed in this research by conducting diagnostic survey among ten contracting firms working on ADB project, collecting data with the help of questionnaire, distributed to contractors, consultant, client and conducting desk study on ADB projects, World bank projects, Midhill highway and RIP projects under department of Road whose construction were started after 2014 and construction progress was more than 80 %.

This book is an introduction to construction contract administration and management, covering the delivery and execution stage of a construction project and the various issues which the contract administrator needs to proactively manage. It can therefore be used as a contract administrator’s resource book covering what needs to be done (and why) to keep a construction project on track from a commercial and contractual perspective. It is particularly appropriate for students and new practitioners from varied construction professions and whilst it covers domestic (UK) projects, it will be particularly useful for those studying and working on international projects where terminology, procedures and legal systems may differ from the UK. The content is split into four parts and is subdivided into easy-to-read chapters replicating the timeline of a project during the construction stage: Part A covers initiating the construction stage, project delivery mechanisms, contract administration and health and safety management; Part B covers managing the construction stage, contractor performance and relationship management; Part C covers finalising the construction stage, project completion and close-out; Part D covers claims and disputes. Introduction to Construction Contract Management will be particularly useful for students enrolled on global construction programmes together with international distance learning students and non-cognate graduates starting out on an international career in construction contract administration and quantity surveying.
