Contract administration

Contract administration involves managing your contracts to make sure you comply with and fulfill the contract conditions. Good contract administration ensures customer satisfaction and minimises disputes.

Master Builders has developed a range of resources to help members administer their contracts.

Construction period calendar

The construction period calendar will help you to calculate the anticipated project completion date.

Cost adjustment guidelines (commercial)

Rising costs in labour and building materials, due to a variety of factors, make it difficult to price building work, and there is a risk that, during the course of a contract, the costs of performing that contract will rise or fall from the costs initially estimated. Generally, this risk cannot be controlled.

Master Builders cost escalation (price change) clause (for residential contracts) and cost adjustment guidelines (for commercial contracts) helps allocate the risk of fluctuating building costs fairly and allows the price of the contract to change according to changes in the building expenses (labour or materials).

A special condition of contract will be necessary to include these provisions in a Contract. 

Project documentation checklist

The project documentation checklist is a comprehensive checklist to help members ensure each step of the building process has been completed.

Supervisors' construction checklist

The supervisors' construction checklist will help supervisors involved in the day-to-day site administration of a residential or commercial project, for new or renovation work.
