I'm reviewing the project delivery methods, but is quite unsure about it since I don't know if I should choose the answer this with a mindset of an Owner? Architect? or Contractor? the Project Delivery Method I've been doing specifically is
- #40 ProPractice on Amber Books which is asking for the Delivery method most appropriate for a speculative retail development on a brownfield site as with as-yet unknown tenants?
- The Answer is - B. Cost plus fixed fee.
For an owner the Cost plus fixed fee delivery method with a project with a lot of unknowns are good since the owner limits the budget.
However, for a contractor this might be a loosing situation since there's a lot of unknown on the site, I feel like this is more suited for a Cost of the Work + % of construction cost with GMP. Which is also what I would choose as an Architect.
Another one is, how's the process of change order should be? is it only the architect who can fill out a form for a change order? or can the contractor fill out the form?
- Contractor talked to the architect that the addition cost $100k more, then the architect prepare the Change Order?
- Or can the Contractor fill out the Change Order form for the additional cost then submit it to the architect & owner?
- Can the Contractor update his schedule of values without doing a change order? like he increase the schedule of values for concrete since it now cost more or since there's an addition?
What are your thoughts?
