Contracts and equivalent internal orders are the means of linking the design and construction of all civil engineering projects. To be effective these have to state who is who, what is to be constructed, where, when and how much payment will be due and what is to happen if these intentions are frustrated. They are therefore of vital importance to all engineers working in design or construction.
