Abstract

As clients have become more aware and demanding of the construction industry, they
are also less tolerant of the management of its problems and the risks involved in the
delivery of major projects. Identification and allocation of risk is one of the most
critical processes in the early stages of project development. Often it is the deciding
factor in the selection of the building process and of the type of procurement method
adopted to manage the various project risks. The emergence of different forms of
procurement, and in particular, design-construct and novation, requires the designconstruct contractor to not only accept the risks associated with the construction of the
works, but also of the design management during the design development of the
project. With the increasing requirement for design-construct contractors to balance
the cost management issues and design development through the various stages, the
role of the design manager as information manager has evolved and expanded in
importance. This paper presents a case study of design management within a designconstruct organization on a large residential apartment project. It identifies and
analyses issues concerned with the organization, responsibilities, relationships and
stages of development in a typical design-construct project.
