||First the contractor has to
develop the outline design into working drawings. By the time
he does this it is too late to change the building structure
and areas where inadequate space has been allowed cannot be
enlarged. The main effect of this is an increase in maintenance
cost and risk to health and safety.
||An other probable penalty if
no co-ordination has taken place between services and the structure
is incurred costs for alterations to the structure not included
within the tender.
||The Quantity Surveyor cannot
accurately quantify bends and offsets in pipe and ductwork
if they have not been included pre-tender. While this may
not increase the overall cost of the project it does mean that
the tender value is incorrectly reported.
||The major effect of the above
items is poor project financial control.
