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.
There are those who maintain that the single most important factor for process success in construction administration is the level of trust existing between project constituents. Everything else that happens in foxhole society (1), both good and bad, springs from this simple axiom. Every syllable of Lean Construction or Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) jargon is premised upon this time honored tradition of trust. From a process standpoint, the truly exceptional building projects result from robust trust based relationships. It is no more complicated than that.#WhitePapers
