Meetings-Monthly Progress Review
Smooth progress of the project is the key to guaranteeing completion on time to which the Owner always attaches great importance. A regular monthly meeting is held between the Owner and the Contractor. 

Owner: Shall we start the meeting? The purpose of our meeting today is to review and discuss the progress of the project, I would like you to explain what you have achieved for the past month.

Contractor: Generally speaking the construction activities have been going smoothly. But there are certain problems concerning some import permits…For the details, Mr. xx will give us an account of the construction progress for all the sections of the Works.  
Mr. xx: For the xxx…At xxx…Let’s now have a look at…We’ve also done…Last…

Owner: Thank you. We can see the progress at XXX confirms to the schedules which we are satisfied. However we don’t get any information about XXX which should start in the past month.

Contractor: Let me clear this up…(changed schedule)

Owner: Thank you. Anyway, I want to remind you that everything should be done strictly in accordance with the contract documents. The slow progress at XXX gives me grave concern which is two week behind schedule.

Contractor: (Explain why), the work is now on track.

Owner: How about the material & equipment supply? 

Contractor: We have purchased and delivered 200 tons of steels to the site, but the explosive we ordered from the U.S. have not been able to be cleared through the Customs due to the import permit problem. 

Owner: I got reply from the competent department that we can get the permit for explosive by next Tuesday. 

Contractor: Thank you. And the telephones installed on the job site are insufficient, therefore we want to have a radio communication system, so we need a license for this.

Owner:  I don’t think this is a problem. I will be able to get it for you within one week, for sure. 

Contractor: Thank you. Good cooperation between us will certainly enhance our success with this project. 

Owner: I can assure you, as the representative of the project Owner, I will, as always, stand firmly behind you in the execution of this project. And I believe that, through our mutual efforts, this project will surely be a success. 

Contractor: I think so, too.

Meetings-Quality Control 
Due to the recent quality defects in the construction, a special meeting is called on the site by the Owner’s representative

Owner: Our resident engineer and I have noticed your performance with regard to compliance with the Specifications and quality of work has slackened. We found that water/cement ratio was not in accordance with the Specification. And at the power house, the multiple runs of embedded electrical conduit are being installed without adequate spacing. I’d like to have your comments on these. 

Contractor: We will talk about the details of our remedy. About the placement of block 9, we followed your resident engineer’s order and immediately suspended the pouring operation and cleared the unqualified mix away from the block. We found that the electronic control system of the batch plant was out of order. We soon repaired it and the pouring operation was resumed after a stop of 45 minutes. 
Owner: What about the electrical conduit spacing problem?

Contractor: Actually, we are doing that strictly in compliance with the working drawings issued by your engineer. May I refer you to Drawing No.xxx. To my construction experience, weakened planes can be avoided if a special concrete mix is made and the pouring procedure is kept under proper control. 

Owner: I’ll check the drawing and discuss it with our consultants. Meanwhile, you are instructed to stop the work on this part of project. 

Constructor: All right, we take your instruction, but will you please give us a written confirmation?

Owner: Ok. It will be given to you soon after this meeting. 
Contractor: Thank you, we will take a lesson from these matters and strengthen our quality assurance system. 

Owner: I have to reiterate that the ongoing construction work is at a critical stage and that the power house is a key component of the generating capability of this project. I expect your site manager to exert close supervision and proper cooperation of the various crew without compromising on quality. 

Contractor: It’s true that we are facing a pressing completion time and have expedite the construction progress, but we will certainly not do it at the cost of the project quality.

Meeting 3-Site Security and Safety
The Owner and the Contractor are working on a security and safety plan for the project 

 Owner: I have reviewed the draft of  security and safety plan you submitted, on the whole it is acceptable, but there are still some deficiencies. 

Contractor: I’d like to have your suggestions.

Owner: It is stated in the plan that two watchmen are to be stationed at   the main gate of the site. That is not enough, Four more are required with two being stationed at the explosive storage and two patrolling the major working area and the boundary of the site. 
Contractor: I agree that two more required at the explosive storage, as to the patrolling two, I think they are needed just for the night time. 

Owner: That’s workable. However, all the watchmen must be professional security guards. They should not be employed from ordinary civilians. Also, there must be warning signs like “No Trespassing!” around the site and “Hazardous Materials” at the explosive storage. 

Contractor: All right, we’ll take this action immediately. 

Owner: Now, about the safe operations at the site, I have to add that all personnel, including authorized visitors, must wear hard hats and sturdy shoes,  it is a must.  This is number one. Number two, fire extinguishers must be provided at all welding or burning action places. Number three, all the blasting operations must be carried by blasters with a blasting license issued locally. 
Owner: Last but not least, first aid station with suitable equipment must be established at all major working area. 

Contractor: Sure. Any other suggestion?

Owner: What I especially care about is the safety in the tunneling operations. What measures do you plan to avoid accidents? 

Contractor: It is true that excavation is most dangerous activity. Measures will be taken to avoid cave-ins, water surging, suffocation and electric shock. A geology engineer is appointed solely for this purpose. 

Owner: Here is last thing I want to mention.  I suggest you contact the nearby hospitals beforehand, to make arrangement with them. They are always ready to help if a serious accident occurs. Safety is not something minor.

Contractor: I agree.

Meetings-Environment Protection
Mr. Lucas, an inspector from local Environmental Protection Agency, is present at the  meeting with the Owner representative and the Contractor. 

 Contractor: Mr. Lucas, welcome to the project, it’s an honor to meet you.

Mr. Lucas: I am glad to have a chance to be here. 

Owner: Mr. Lucas hopes to learn how the environment is protected while the project’s going on. 

Mr. Lucas: This is very important project for our country, however, some local residents from the nearby community are rather concerned with its possibility adverse impact on the environment during the construction. What environment protection measures do you undertake? 
Contractor: Right from beginning of the works, we studied the environment protection regulations published by the government, and according to it we have made a careful plan on this project to protect the relevant land, surrounding vegetation and, especially , the Macal River water. 

Lucas: May I have more specific details of your measures?

Contractor: To avoid contamination by the leaking of fuel and garbage, various treatment facilities have been built. To protect Macal River water, things like  empty cement bags, cartons and other waste materials are cleared away from the river banks in time. As to the waste water from the crushing system at our batch plant, special treatment is carried before it is let go into the river. 
Lucas: Could you elaborate on your special treatment?

Contractor: (Explain the settlement tank system)

Lucas: Sounds fine, but how do you guarantee that this plan is implemented?

Contractor: We have designated one of our staff to be solely in charge of this job. He is responsible for monitoring and examining all the working crews carrying out his work. Of course, we are always under the superintendence of the Owner. 

Lucas: Can I go to the job site and have a look, please?

Contractor:  You are welcome to visit at any time you like. After  your visit, you could tell those worried residents that this project will not do any harm to their lives. Instead, it will improve their living condition
