Example text

In effect this is the best functional description of any project team, regardless of procurement method, in that the purpose of every participant is to provide a service or product to a commissioning client who pays. The only difference is that in other methods either the designer or the specialist trade contractor provides his or her service or product through a construction manager acting as an overall ‘contractor’. This arrangement best shows the reality of any project, in that dual reporting is always needed because there are always both design and construction management issues to be considered by all parties to the process.

Any formal sort of ‘organization’ tends to be something that evolves as the project progresses rather than something that is established at its inception. W HY DO PARTICIPATING FIRMS FAIL AS EFFECTIVE ‘TEAM MEMBERS’ IN PROJECTS? As previously described, the ‘team’ as a whole and its ‘members’ as individual parts of that whole, as participating firms, happen as the project happens. Specific requirements and unique arrangements that become known or certainly become clearer as they progress are essential features of any construction project.

However, the usual situation is that design, construction and other cost or management organizations are ‘in business’ to provide a service to a client — public or private — who wishes to have a building or civil engineering construction, the ‘project’ being the process by which the final construction is realized. Although all these organizations have in common the fact that construction projects are their ‘business’, design organizations have different motivations from the others. There is also another difference because architects and engineers, apart from being ‘designers’ for the project, have also traditionally provided the client with ‘professional advice’ regarding the whole construction process.
