3.1.0   Stage 1 - Final Design (Working Drawings, Specs & Contract Docs)

•  Throughout every project phase, both Project and Technical Management must proceed in tandem and be closely integrated.

•  Prior to construction contract award, the 'PCM' is a knowledgeable construction industry representative such as a senior construction estimator. After construction contract award, the 'PCM' is either the prime contractor's manager or, if trade contracts are let directly, an experienced independent construction manager. In this Stage 1 the 'PCM' is a knowledgeable construction industry representative.
