Third Party Interface Within the Construction Contract

Part of: Excellence in the Constructed Project


The construction contract inevitably requires an interface with a third party, outside of the traditional Owner/Engineer-Contractor relationship. Often, the local jurisdictional body, be it a City, County or State agency, utility company, railroad or other entity can significantly alter the course of the construction contract. This paper attempts to deal with the procedures which can be implemented by the Owner/Engineer during the preconstruction and construction phases of the Contract, which can mitigate future problems during construction. The ultimate goal of this effort is to minimize claims, delays and additional costs to the Owner during construction.
