Construction Administration

Often the success of even a well-planned project lies in diligent contract administration.  Payne Design Group Architects believe in the importance of the architect's presence throughout the construction process and are dedicated to that end for the duration of the project.  We also believe that having the design and production partners administer the construction is actually the best situation for our clients, since no one knows the plans better than those who prepared them.

Although the contractor is responsible for building in accordance with the plans and specifications, the design team should be active in helping to ensure that the construction of  the facility adheres to those plans and specifications.  The team is responsible for seeing that the contractor's methodology and schedule are appropriately and precisely implemented to the extent our agreement allows.  Complete and accurate progress information, including minutes of weekly meetings, RFIs, ASIs, and other communication techniques, are distributed to all pertinent parties involved in a project.  Our intimacy with the design, coupled with our broad understanding of the on site execution, provides the leadership, support, and direction needed for a successful project.
