The basic building block of all architect-engineering firms is the client-funded individual project. These firms, of all sizes and complexities, have one thing in common: they all operate under the authority of contracts that must be successfully executed to ensure overall success and continuity of the firm. Without that success, the firm goes out of business. It therefore holds true that the degree to which these contracts are successfully managed determines the degree of success or failure of the enterprise. This journal therefore is dedicated to the business process we refer to as contract administration, or the combined acts of the firm’s staff to ensure that all elements desired by the client are formulated into a relationship that is reduced to writing known as the written contract and then successfully executed by the firm. Whether the company is comprised of one hundred employees or ten thousand, these contracts must be administered for success, within budget and within schedule, and meet the changing dynamics of the project’s requirements over time. Effective contract administration is essentially a sound communications process that guarantees that fundamental information in the contract relationship is disseminated to the project and support personnel who are expected to perform the contract’s requirements. This journal describes those tasks that must be executed to ensure that contract administration is a successful outcome, and that all the players on the company team execute their individual tasks professionally, repetitiously, and successfully.

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.

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.

This text is a response to the growing need for better management which many people find necessary when leading or working within teams or groups undertaking a project. Increasingly, people in a working environment are engaged in organised practices and utilising resources, facing the challenge of having to meet, or better, predetermined cost budgets and strict timetables.
