Would it not be nice if there was a collaborative concept that would involve the best of all parties? Where more grip is on the solution, more grip on the fixing of prices and therefore a greater budget certainty? A collaboration in which the main risks are being integrated in the design and the contract is being adapted to the circumstances. A collaboration in which contract management is more efficient and effective, without the intensive change of management.
The involvement of a contractor in the construction team is an existing model to elaborate the design and to implement the contractor’s expertise. In this model, however, there is no certainty that agreed contractual means can actually be implemented. In other words, there are issues then to cope with.
