The Construction Management Contract and the Role of the Engineer

We are all aware of the increase in ‘non-traditional’ forms of contract which have been introduced into the construction industry over the past 2 decades. The reasons for them initially related to the demand for rapid construction techniques to satisfy the development ‘boom’, of the 1960s. The subsequently proven unsatisfactory performance of many of the buildings constructed at that time diminished not only the reputation of the parties concerned in a particular failure, but also that of the industry as a whole.
