Sample text

As noted previously, the owner must be provided enough information to allow a rational decision about the choices available. This information should include the alternatives, the consequences of deciding one alternative over another, and the data and/or logic the engineer used to arrive at the consequences. This is also an opportunity to revisit the assumptions made in screening the alternatives to determine if they have changed due to circumstances or the passage of time. The null alternative should also be explicitly addressed.

Acceptance of the project. The owner’s perspective is taken because the contracts for construction are with the owner and, ultimately, the facility belongs to the owner, not the engineer. None the less, the engineer’s role is critical because he/she must diligently observe and, to the best of their ability, assure the owner that the facility is built according to the plans and specifications. The construction process should not begin before the design process and project financing are complete.

The process described here is an overview of the classical engineering approach to design- and construction-related activities. In this approach, vendor-furnished equipment is procured according to performance or prescriptive specifications through contractors who are bidding from drawings and specifications prepared by a consulting engineer. All funding and ownership of the facilities rest with the owner in the classical approach. In actual practice some of the steps described below will be bypassed and others, not described, will be inserted based on the experience of the designer and the complexity of the design.
