Project Administration for Design-Build Contracts explains the basics of administering a design-build project after the contract has been awarded. As with Preparing for Design-Build Projects—about design-build projects during the proposal stage—by the same three broadly experienced authors, this book breaks the process into a series of learning modules that explain the component steps. It begins with an introduction to design-build project administration and goes on to cover topics such as scheduling, design administration, and design quality management. The authors examine construction topics including quality management, change orders, progress payments, and close-out. This practical guide provides case studies, often drawn from the authors' own experiences.

This book is a resource for owners, engineers, construction contractors, and architects who find themselves in need of guidance in administering a design-build project. It will assist those professionals who actually do the designing, the building, and the contract administration. It organizes the options so that the advantages and disadvantages are highlighted, providing the user the necessary information to make sound business decisions.
