Apart from the separation of design and construction, the conventional procurement system exhibits a number of other basic characteristics: 1 Project delivery is a sequential process. 2 The design of the project is largely completed before work commences on site. 3 The responsibility for managing the project is divided between the client’s consultants and the contractor, and there is therefore little scope for involvement of either of the parties in the other’s activities. 4 Reimbursement of the client’s consultants is normally on a fee and expenses basis, whereas the contractor is paid for the work completed on an admeasure or lump sum basis.

This trend has continued until the present time, with clients satisfying their needs by increasingly using non-conventional procurement systems to the detriment of the conventional method. 4 Share of the market While a great deal of time and effort has been expended in achieving technical innovation in construction, and refining existing and producing new forms of contract, very little attention had been paid, until comparatively recently, to the rationalisation and reorganisation of the procurement process, thus allowing the conventional system to maintain a major share of the available building work.
