CONTRACT PROBLEMS IN MAJOR UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

Contract problems in major underground construction projects generally emerge from four principal areas: the gathering and presentation of geological data, the present form of contract, the identification and allocation of major contract risks, and the fair and expeditious handling of contract disputes. Contract problems emerging from these four principal areas too often result in continual disputes during the life of the contract and consume administrative, management and engineering time, time that could be put to more creative and constructive use. Further, in many cases a lengthy period of litigation follows the contract completion, again consuming time and money which could be put to better use. /TRRL/
