Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development


Code of Practice for Project Management for
 Construction and Development

The aim of this Code of Practice is to provide the clients and all the other members
of the project team with a definitive strategy for the management and co-ordination
of any project. The objective of the code is to define the responsibilities of all the
participants involved in order to achieve the completion of the project on time, to
the specifications defined by the project brief and within the budget. The client
expects that effective project management will enable the project’s completion, by
the time when it is wanted, of a standard and quality that is required, and at a price
that is competitive.

The third edition of this Code of Practice is a client-orientated document. The role
and responsibilities are clearly defined in this revised code – whether the client is
an individual, a corporate body or a development company and whatever the form
of contract they choose to use. The code helps a project manager define and recommend
the appropriate form of contract to meet the client’s requirements and
ensure that the roles and responsibilities are defined and linked to the form of contract
The code represents a cross-boundary approach to construction project management
by incorporating working practices and policies from across the construction
industry, encompassing the entire range of clients, architects, engineers, quantity
surveyors, builders, specialist contractors and the major professional institutions.
This third edition reflects the changes in the construction practices initiated through
the Latham, Egan and other reports and represents a cohesive initiative to formulate
guidelines and working practices covering the development of a construction
project from inception through all its stages to completion and occupation of the
developed facility.
