TocciToday May 2010 – Is Contracting Dead?
This month’s issue of TocciToday:
The typical contractor, owner, architect, engineer or subcontractor has spent decades mastering the skill of meeting contractual minimums. They contort to only execute the letter of the law.

Following their example, should owners expect more? Can work be highly collaborative within traditional contract types? Is there such a thing as outcome-based project delivery that sets aside the excruciating detail of ‘Contract Documents’? We think so, but you don’t have to take our word for it; take a look at these firms: Moore Lindner, Dynalectric and DPR Construction.
