Construction Administration (CA) involves making decisions for the timely flow of information and decisions to enable completion of a project as required by the contract documents including review and observation of the construction project. This is important to the Owner and ACM not only to determine that the work is proceeding in conformity with the contract documents, but also because it allows a final opportunity to detect any inaccuracies, ambiguities or inconsistencies in the design.
The objective of ACM is to improve construction contract administration and enforcement of contract requirements during the construction phase of the project to ensure the Owner get what is expected. This task requires close coordination with the contractor, subcontractors and municipal agencies to provide an open, seamless exchange of ideas as things are modified in the field. CA requires constant monitoring on a daily basis and ie the final phase in the development of a project.
