Who we are

The Construction Contract Administration Knowledge Community (CCA) has been established to help our members better understand the issues, actions and resultant impact of the decisions required in this often neglected part of Project Delivery. It is our goal to provide clear answers to issues of concern to the Institute’s membership and share case studies and best practices. We further hope to provide guidance and direction in developing guidelines for new and evolving approaches to Project Delivery as well as guidance in the continuing education of our emerging young professionals.

2015 Being Precise in the Construction World 

11-06-2015 01:23 PM

by Bill Schmalz Have you heard this one? When school child asks a guard how old the dinosaur fossil is, he tells her, “65,000,029 years old.” The teacher is surprised and asks how he knew the age so precisely... All measurements can only be as precise as their inherent tolerances allow. For example, if your Schematic Design estimate includes a line item for structural steel of $1,200,000 and a line item for curtain wall of $1,516,874, two alarm bells ought to go off in your head.
