This unique introduction to contract administration is designed especially for those who need to understand the contract administration process overall (rather than the fine details) - and who have not yet developed a background of professional experience or insight. Using a simplified approach to a complex, evolving area, it provides an up-to-date overview of the entire process - including the general philosophy and rationale, and the roles, obligations, and responsibilities of all major participants in a construction project. Appropriate for all construction disciplines - e.g. architecture, engineering, construction management, construction - it focuses on those topics that cross several occupational lines and that are directly usable by any of the major project participants.* Does not require professional experience and insight. * Incorporates the latest techniques, configurations, and approaches used in the field.;* Makes a clear distinction between contract administration and construction management: * Defines the contract administrator as one hired by an owner, but not part of the owner-contractor agreement, who oversees the dynamics of the project - assessing deviations from the original plan and resolving problems when possible. * Defines contract administration as a system of activity which is used to bring the project to finale - with all participants in harmony and moving in concert, the project completed in virtual compliance with the contract documents, and each participant (e.g., owner, contractor, sub-contractor, supplier, manufacturer) satisfied, if not fully content, with the progress, the performance, the product, and the profit derived. * Describes the work of all three major project participants - architects, engineers, and construction managers - during the construction phase. * Discusses in detail - and points out the commonalties and differences - in the legal, ethical, and contractual obligations of the design professionals (architects and engineers) and the construction manager.;* Provides some discussion of contracts themselves - but only as general background for understanding the various scenarios that students may likely encounter in contract administration today. * Includes chapter ""tasks"" that provide a variety of interactive and review approaches to topics.
