Design and Construction requires a different approach and both contractors and consultants can find it difficult to adjust to this method of procurement. Consultants may be reluctant to work with a contractor to produce a suitable design and contractors often struggle with the implications of being responsible for a design they did not produce. Similarly, clients are often left feeling exposed, as they no longer have direct control over the design. Many of the problems in Design and Construction arise from a lack of suitably qualified and experienced managers on both sides of the designer constructor interface. These problems can be made worse if the client insists on an overly bureaucratic regime of checks and approvals. The importance of this interface is emphasized throughout the guide. There must be an individual with responsibility for managing this interface. Involving the constructor, the operator and the eventual end-user in the initial stages of design work can bring the client significant benefits, from single point accountability through to improved operational and maintenance characteristics. Project teams can benefit from more direct communication, resulting in greater awareness of different aspects of a project and fewer errors due to misinterpretation and misunderstanding. This book explores the latest advances in the field of this subject. The subject matter, both as regards the arrangement of chapters as well as contents is designed to meet the requirement of the students in several Universities.
