Ensuring the documents are accurate, consistent, and most reasonable for the industry standards.
An accurate estimate of cost will be obtained at best by pricing measured quantities and items contained in the construction documents. Material ordering lists will be useful should it be desired.
Realistic independent cost estimates based on measured quantities and firm proposals for all items and services.
Time is the essence of the contract hence it is critical that a contract period be established as the first order of business. Planning and scheduling the relevant items of work must be at the heart of the contract.
There should be a comparative review of all bids and proposals to ensure that they are fully responsive to the construction documents (without qualifications and exclusions). It is critical at this stage to confirm that the respective bids and proposals are in compliance with the contract conditions.
Most permits should be obtained by the licensed contractor executing the work however, the owner must monitor this aspect of the work ensure that all relevant and required permits are obtained and inspections are requested in good time. It should be determined whether any aspect or item of work has to be inspected or reviewed by any Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) other than the relevant building department.
Compliance with OSHA and other ‘State and Local regulatory agencies’ should be included in the construction project contract. The contractor’s safety program should be reviewed and approved before commencement of the work. Regular and unscheduled safety walks should be done to establish whether a safe worksite is being maintained.
Generally most items under the Compliance Management would be covered under the architectural services, but should that not only be the case; then responsibility would fall to the owner or the construction manager of the project. Close attention should be given to testing laboratory services, shop drawings, product data and sampling processes, project management records, building code inspections, subcontractors’ coordination, installation sequencing, QC/QA, certificates for payment, change orders, and other final accounts that would be held.
As part of a contract compliance, contract should figure those the responsible parties; if not the architect then the owner or the construction manager will satisfy himself that all defects have been rectified, all statutory requirements have been met and that the work has been completed as intended by the construction documents and procedures.
