Contracting, Traditional

Under the traditional contracting model the client engages an architect to develop the design, or undertakes the task in-house, and then engages a contractor to build the design. Thus there will be a contract between the client and the architect and a contract between the client and the contractor, but not between the architect and the contractor. The approach contrasts with design and construct contracting and the use of a management contractor. See also Engineer, Procure, Commission, Operate and Maintain.
