Developers of super high-rise buildings in China often engage international designers for preliminary and schematic design, while local design institutes in China are responsible for the design of the construction drawings. The construction drawings provided by local design institutes are produced in accordance with Chinese practices. The drawings however do not entail many details, which result in a lot of issues and eventually affect project delivery, cost and quality. To meet the above challenges, this presentation provided some effective measures for achieving best value and for protecting the developer’s financial interest in the implementation of the project.
