In the fast paced world today, time has become a crucial factor for everything what we do and it is more significant in the industry and in business. Construction industry is no exception and the time taken in the conceptual design, architectural and structural designs, project development, and the construction phases has become increasingly compressed as cost and schedule concerns become more important. For fast track construction projects it has become common practice to make fast project delivery contractual arrangements such as; Design-Build and cost-plus contracts. Such contracts come with added advantage of mitigating the potential for disputes due to errors or missed out content in contract documents and delays of consultants. While the up-front planning and design stages are compressed to facilitate a faster project completion, greater effort and cooperation is paramount to ensuring these initial stages are performed completely and accurately to minimize any impacts to the project. Fast delivery of projects has become the dream of the Construction industry for optimum business gains.
