Residential Building Contracts Assignment
Order Code: 459121
Question Task Id: 0
You are a Construction Management Consultant specializing in residential project management and contract administration. You have been approached by an inexperienced client to offer advice (initially in the form of a pre-contract report) on the contractual, design, management, and legal processes for a residential construction project. The client has bought a 1930's double-brick California Bungalow on Skelton Street (in the block between Gordon Ave and Parkway Ave) in the Newcastle suburb of Hamilton South.
The client is planning a significant renovation of the existing property that will include the addition of an extension providing a new living area, two bedrooms, bathroom, and an outdoor covered deck. Early estimates indicate project costs of $900,000 for the renovation/extension. The report must specifically focus on identifying the process and stakeholders, review and recommend contract options and discuss relevant legislation (Insurance, WHS, et al).
