Construction

The design and construction process is where the various parties involved have to work together, such as the commissioning authority, the architect, the consulting engineers, the contractor, sub-contractors, other contractors and suppliers. Over the years more or less standardized contracts and contract terms have evolved, such as the UAV 1989, the UAV-GC 2000/2005, the SR, RVOI and the DNR 2005, while terms like Turnkey, Design & Construct, DBFMO and construction team have also become household words.
