  1. The Contractor’s PM (and staff in general) should be paid more than Consultant’s PM. They usually work far harder and mop up where the Consultant’s didn’t complete their designs, procurement and interfaces correctly.

    • If the consultant is good at what he does, there should be few holes for the contractor to have to clean up. Also, if the contractor submits RFIs for clarification of vague and ambiguous details, they put the onus back on the consultant to provide the information necessary.
      Far too many consultants design drawings and specifications only for ease of estimating or constructability in mind, but not both. Consultants that are worth the cost excel at doing both consistently.
