Contract Administration

Spectra Packaging, Halesworth Daniel Connal Partnership Quantity Surveyors, Building Surveyors Employer's Agent, Project Managers  CDM Co-ordinators in London, Colchester, Essex. Norwich, NorfolkTo ensure the smooth running of a construction project a contract administrator must have the ability to act independently between the Employer and the Contractor. He/she must be able to command the respect of the parties to the contract by being resolute and objective to ensure the interests of the Employer and the Contractor are equally balanced

Sometimes during the course of a construction project, the contract administrator may find himself under intense pressure to make quick decisions to ensure the smooth and timely progress of buildinTyssen Primary Schoolg works. As the middleman between contractor and employer, he will inevitably find himself fielding questions and answering requests of various parties on site on a daily basis. Problems occur when instructions provided by a contract administrator lead to additional and/or varied work being carried out under the contract. Unsurprisingly, the contractor will seek payment for any extras, and the employer may well be very unwilling to release more funds (especially if the contract administrator does not have a contractual power to order variations). Alternatively, a contractor may seek to rely on the fact that he was simply following the contract administrator’s instructions as a defence to an allegation of defective workmanship.
