This is where it all begins … with an idea – an idea on the part of the ‘employer’, which needs translating through the investment process into concrete, steel, bricks and mortar, into a new asset to serve the employer’s needs. The employer is the person, company, local authority or agency who has the need and who will pay for the design and construction of the new asset. The employer is often called ‘the client’ by design organisations such as consulting engineers or architects. Effective construction professionals explore the employer’s need, provide advice, and then develop the employer’s requirements into the design for a construction project. The contractor will build or construct this project.
