Control of construction contracts. Analysis of systems for the control of progress, quality and cost of construction to the client, based upon six cases in building or civil engineering in the UK.

By Gerassimos Emmanuel Ninos


Six civil engineering and building projects under construction have\ud been observed in order to compare theory and practice, and thus draw\ud conclusions on how Clients and their management teams may control\ud construction effectively.\ud It has been reported and the six studies have shown that during\ud construction as problems occur decisions taken to tackle them result\ud in changes to one or more of the independant variables cost, time\ud and performance.\ud It is therefore argued in this thesis that if these variables are to\ud be controlled to Xhe. Client's benefit:.\ud - clear responsibilities, duties and authority to make decisions\ud should be given to the members of project management teams.\ud -a project control system should be set up which will help the\ud management team to perform those duties.\ud - both the management team and the system should be organized to\ud suit the particular project and Client
