Part 06 CONSTRUCTION
Part 06 of the Manual of Practice contains information applicable to all construction components associated with the successful completion of a project. These aspects include the following attributes.
recognition of effort required to precede construction of a project,
identifying the documents and the parties affected by a construction contract,
Identifying the activities associated with construction,
understanding the commissioning process as it applies to the whole construction process,
recognizing the impact of concluding the construction process and how that affects post-construction activities.

This Part also contains information applicable to:
recognition of effort required to precede construction of a project,
identifying the documents and the parties affected by a construction contract,
understanding the responsibilities of a consultant (the consultant-of-record), who is usually an architect, civil engineer, interior designer and others, and how they relate to an owner and a contractor in the construction process and
recognizing the commissioning process as it applies to the whole construction process.

The construction of a project is the sum total of efforts that include the ideas, talents and services of a large and diverse group. This Part outlines the main participants as:
an owner or agency who commissioned the project;
a contractor who has bid or negotiated to construct the project;
a consultant who has contractual duties to perform in administering the construction contract on behalf of both parties.

There are others involved in any project by agreement with one of the main participants. This Part identifies them as:
subcontractors who construct portions of the work under the direction of a contractor,
suppliers who furnish materials or products for a project,
manufacturers who produce materials or products for the project,
consultants who provide professional services to the project and
testing laboratories or agencies who provide quality control information to both an owner and contractor.

Other participants who affect the construction process identified in this Part, include:
financial advisors and institutions, who arrange project financing,
attorneys who coordinate the legal and contractual issues of a project,
insurance advisors and insurance companies who provide risk coverage to the project stakeholders,
bonding companies who monitor performance of a contractor and
building authorities who have jurisdiction over the construction and who establish criteria in the form of codes, ordinances and permits.

Construction begins with a complete set of construction documents and conclude as a completed facility. An owner/occupant will then move to the next phase of the project's life cycle - occupancy. The success (or failure) of the construction phase depends upon team commitment to the process.

This Part outlines the team member with the greatest number of construction administration responsibilities is the contractor. Basic technical competence and team-leading skills are but a small part of the overall responsibility of a prime contractor. Schedule control, subcontractor relations, payment procedures, safety, insurance and bonds, submittals and a multitude of other responsibilities involve a contractor as much in business management as in quality monitoring.

This Part also identifies the responsibility for contract administration typically rests with the consultant of record who provides services to an owner through the design phases, and represents an owner during the construction phase. In this way, the project benefits from the consultant's continuous involvement in the design and construction process.
