This paper deals with the civil engineering contract entered into by the Teesside Development Corporation and Tarmac Construction, and the method adopted for the construction of the Tees Barrage. The essence of the contract was that the works comprised both the design and the construction of the Tees Barrage and associated structures which were to be carried out for a lump sum price, with Tarmac carrying all risks, including those associated with design, development, inflation, ground conditions and weather. The contract also required that the works should be carried out under a BS 5750 Part 1 system. The construction method for the barrage involved a major diversion of the River Tees, necessitating extensive temporary works designed by Tarmac Construction Engineering Services. This method was also recognized in the design of the permanent works carried out by Montgomery Watson for Tarmac Construction. The barrage construction itself was carried out in eight separate phases of work as described in this paper. (A)
