The Parris Company has a great deal of experience in Construction Contract Administration. Contract administration involves making decisions and the timely flow of information and decisions to enable completion of the project as required by the contract documents including review and observation of the construction project. The objective of the CCA program is to improve construction contract administration by providing education related to the administration and enforcement of contract requirements during the construction phase of the project.
The Construction Contract Administrator role is review the contract documents and specifications for errors and omissions, establish the bidding requirements and bid process, list bid alternatives and substitutions, denote and identify code standards and regulatory influences, clearly define site activities during construction, state in the bid package how the execution of the work is to take place, layout for the process for the Certificate of Payment to be processed, and clarify how changes in the work are to be submitted.
In addition, before the bid package is issued for bid the contract administrator is to ensure the bid package addresses dispute resolution, construction insurance, construction surety bonds, project submittal process, quality control and safety program, identifies the clerk of the works, lays out contract close-out procedures and stipulates how owner guaranties and warranties are to be submitted to the owner at the end of the project before final payment is issued.
The Importance of Contract Administration

There is nothing more devastating than a project that does not live up to its initial expectations. With The Parris Company's assistance, any contract inconsistencies, abnormalities or divergence from the original design or contract documents can be discovered before it's too late. As precise record-keepers, skilled communicators and detail-oriented architects, The Parris Company is an excellent choice for construction contract administrator.
