The College of William and Mary Design and Construction Manual (hereafter referred to as the
Manual) for capital projects contains policy, procedures and standards that must be followed in
the execution of capital outlay projects. Supporting documentation concerning the enabling
legislation and delegation of authority from the Commonwealth of Virginia to the College of
William & Mary (the College) is in Appendix W.
1.1.1 The Act: The Manual sets forth the policies authorized by the Restructured
Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act (hereafter known
as the Act), Chapter 4.10 (§23-38.88 et seq) of Title 23 of the Code of Virginia.
1.1.2 Deviations From Policy and Procedures: Deviations from the policy,
procedures and standards outlined within shall be requested by a
Determination and Findings (D&F) [see Appendix R] and must have prior
approval of the College of William and Mary Associate Vice President for
Facilities Management (AVP-FM)
The D&F shall justify and substantiate the need for the deviation.
All deviations so provided shall be consistent with the authorities
provided Agencies 204 and 268, particularly Exhibit G (Policy
Governing Capital Outlay Projects), Exhibit H (Policy Governing
Leases of Real Property) and Exhibit J (Policy Governing the
Procurement of Goods, Services, Insurance, and Construction and
the Disposition of Surplus Materials) to include Attachment 1
(Procurement Rules) of the Management Agreement which are
shown at Appendices W and S of this manual.
Only a mere 200 some years had passed since the end
of the Industrial Revolution. The human race found
itself faced with two extremely serious problems:
resource/energy depletion and global warming. These
problems arose as a result of the human race’s enjoyment
of convenient and comfortable lifestyles.
A sense of crisis arising from these circumstances
has led to various movements over the past several
decades. The first warning came in the form of a report
to the Club of Rome entitled “Limits of Growth”
[Meadows D.H., Meadows D.I., Randers & Behren III
1971] Despite its devastating content, the report was not
taken very seriously at the time of its publication. The
“Declaration of the Human Environment” was adopted
at the UN Conference on the Human Environment held
in Stockholm in 1972, presenting the following principle
concerning the environment-related rights and
responsibilities of the human race:
“Man has the fundamental right to freedom, equality
and adequate conditions of life, in an environment of a
quality that permits a life of dignity and well-being, and
he bears solemn responsibility to protect and improve
the environment for present and future generations.”
The only complete, up-to-date guide to estimating modern building construction projects -- now updated, expanded, and incorporating many additional workbook problems.
Now updated and expanded, Estimating in Building Construction, Eighth Edition, brings together everything needed for a complete, modern course in estimating. Building on well-proven previous editions, it combines sound coverage of principles with step-by-step procedures to help students learn concepts more easily. Ideal for construction, architecture, and engineering students, it reflects the popular approach of tracking a complete project's progress. There are examples of estimating portions of the building that many General Contractors perform, and thorough coverage of the use of specialty subcontractors. This edition adds a new discussion of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and more detailed discussions of estimating equipment cost, electrical, plumbing (including fire sprinklers), and HVAC. For convenience and cost savings, workbook problems that accompanied the previous edition have been incorporated into the book.
The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) has created an Agency Quality
Management Plan (AQMP) to comply with the Project Quality Program required under the
Cooperative Agreement for Design-Build between the California Department of Transportation
(Caltrans) and RCTC. The AQMP is divided into three volumes:
• Volume I – AQMP General Requirements, includes the general overview of quality
oversight and Independent Quality Assurance (IQA) by RCTC, general requirements,
and other topics relevant to design and construction.
• Volume II – Design-Build Design Manual (DBDM), provides the Project Team with an
efficient resource to guide team members in performing their roles and
responsibilities to ensure Design-Builder’s compliance with all Contract and state and
federal requirements during the design of the Project .
• Volume III – Design-Build Construction Manual (DBCM), provides the Construction
Management Team (CMT) with an efficient resource to guide team members in
performing their roles and responsibilities to ensure Design-Builder’s compliance with
all Contract and state and federal requirements during the construction of the Project.
It also covers the Caltrans Quality Assurance Program requirements applicable to a
design-build project with the required Assembly Bill (AB) 2098 personnel structure.
This book provides a detailed guide to the principles and practice of construction contracts. It is written for both students and professionals working in all branches of surveying and construction. Based around the JCT 05 Standard Building Contracts, it has been fully revised and updated to reflect the latest versions of these contracts.
The book sets out clearly what should be done at each stage of the construction contract process. Each step is illustrated with examples of good practice making clear the role and responsibilities of the surveyor and how responsibilities are best delivered.
This fourth edition of Contract Practice for Surveyors builds on the book's reputation for clarity and simplicity to provide the most accessible and useful introductory guide to construction contracts available today.
·Clear, simple and easy to follow guide to practice and procedures
·Examples of best practice throughout
·Fully updated for the latest revisions to the Standard Form
So far in the twenty-first century, there have been many developments in our understanding of materials’ behaviour and in their technology and use. This new edition has been expanded to cover recent developments such as the use of glass as a structural material. It also now examines the contribution that material selection makes to sustainable construction practice, considering the availability of raw materials, production, recycling and reuse, which all contribute to the life cycle assessment of structures. As well as being brought up-to-date with current usage and performance standards, each section now also contains an extra chapter on recycling.
