Once an idea for a project has crystallised into a detailed design and appropriate contractual arrangements have been made, work can begin on site. Much effort has already been expended by the Client and his advisors to define what is required and it is now the duty of the supervising Engineer and the Contractor to ensure that the Client is satisfied with the final product. That will mean a project which is completed on time, within budget and to the quality expected by the Client. In the previous chapter we looked in some detail at contractual administration of construction; in this chapter we shall look at the management structures which exist on site and how they reflect contractual arrangements. We begin by looking at the staffing structure for Client and Contractor and go on to examine the details of financial control on site. An overview of quality control is followed by a detailed look at the techniques available to site managers to exercise operational control.
