Chapter 5 Who is the superintendent?

‘Superintendent is the term commonly used to describe an individual or business who is given specific roles or functions under a construction contract to administer the contract.

It is not always essential to appoint a superintendent, particularly in simple works.

Other terms may be used to describe the role, for example:

  • in the ABIC form of contract the reference is to the Architect; and
  • in PC-1 the reference is to the Contract Administrator.
