Civil Engineering Contracts: Practice and Procedure, Second Edition explains the contract procedures used in civil engineering projects. Topics covered include types of contract in civil engineering, general conditions of contract, insurances, and tender procedures. The powers, duties, and functions of the engineer and his representative are also considered. This book is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with an overview of the philosophy underlying the contract system in civil engineering, followed by a discussion on the promotion of civil engineering works. The reader is then introduced to types of civil engineering contracts; contract risk and contract responsibility; the application of contract documents; and general conditions of contract. The remaining chapters focus on contract specifications; bill of quantities and methods of measurement; principles and types of insurance; procedures for competitive bids or tenders; cost estimates, methods of pricing, and rate fixing; and claims on civil engineering contracts.

Sponsored by the Construction Quality Management and Inspection Committee of the Owners Directorate of the Construction Institute of ASCE. Quality in the Constructed Project: A Guide for Owners, Designers, and Constructors, third edition, provides information and recommendations on principles and procedures that are effective in enhancing the quality of constructed projects. The guide?a complete update of the previous edition?discusses the roles, responsibilities, requirements, and limits of authority of participants in the design and construction process, highlighting concepts and practices that are valuable to each in achieving project goals and objectives. This Manual of Practice presents several key themes, including the value of clearly defining and assigning responsibilities, the importance of teamwork, the need for clear contractual provisions, strategies for good communication, the owner's selection process for other team members, the potential benefits associated with various project delivery systems, and procedures for managing design and construction. Although this guide is written primarily with traditional design-bid-build (DBB) projects in mind, it also highlights areas in which alternative forms of project delivery, such as design-build, may shift project responsibilities and risk to different participants. Chapters include: owner's role and requirements; project delivery systems; project team; coordination and communication; selecting the design professional; agreement for professional services; alternative studies and project impacts; planning and managing design; design discipline coordination; guidelines for design activities; precontract planning for construction; construction team; procedures for selecting the constructor; construction contract; planning and managing construction; construction contract documentation and submittals; construction contract administration; operation and maintenance; quality assurance and quality control; computer technology and project delivery; peer review; risk, liability, and avoiding conflict; partnering; and value engineering. MOP 73 will be useful to owners, design professionals, and constructors interested in enhancing the quality of constructed projects.
