Summary

This comprehensive third edition covers the most widely used contract documents -- with descriptions of contract components, insurance and other requirements, bidding procedures, and project delivery methods.

The author describes how to: * Structure your documents for maximum efficiency * Effectively communicate construction requirements to all concerned * Review documents to ensure consistency and avoid conflicts

Contract documents are explained in detail -- including the plans and specifications, addenda conditions, and supplements. The relationships between the owner, design professional, and contractor are clearly defined -- who relates to whom and how, and the parties' respective liabilities.

The author gives major emphasis to the preparation of specifications and technical requirements, description writing, proprietary and performance specs, and standards. The book also provides practical guidance on engineering and architectural drawings, CAD, graphic standards, and schedules.

Coverage of contract administration includes the duties and responsibilities of the parties to the contract, meetings, transmittals, shop drawings, mock-ups, the punch list and payments.

New to this edition is a section on the advantages and disadvantages of traditional and alternative project delivery methods, including conventional design-bid-build, multiple contracts, construction management, design/build and fast-track methods.
