|2.1 Preparatory Process|
For the implementation of a project, small or large, good preparation compatible with the dimensions of the project, is needed. Adequate coordination between the Contractor and the Engineer in project preparation ensures that the work will be properly executed both in time and quality (Abrahamson, 1969).
The Contractors duties are as follows:
- Review and study all the detailed plans thoroughly.
- Report all questions and comments to the Engineer, particularly those which have a bearing on timely execution of the project.
- Request any additional drawings, calculations or other clarifications from the Engineer.
- Make application for any and all permits required for the construction work from the public authorities.
- Arrange for all necessary sub-contracts.
- Prepare a detailed schedule of requirements for all items of work, materials and equipment.
- Order all equipment required for the construction, e.g., pumps, generators, etc. The Engineers duties are as follows:
- Provide to the Contractor all permits required before and during the construction work.
- Arrange, if necessary, for provision of adequate water source for construction work.
- Supply any additional drawings, calculations or modifications to the work plan which may be required by the Contractor.
