can a surveryor control a total contract under nzs 3910 2003 or does it have to be an engineer also does a projectmanager have to have experience in earthmoving contract also
Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
Under this contract, engineer is not defined as having any particular qualifications. It is quite common for a quantity survey to be the engineer under the contract, and sometimes architects are also appointed. NZS 3910 does not say that it has to be a particular qualification, because different jobs sometimes require different professions. If this is a contract about earthmoving, and you are using NZS 3910 there is no requirement for the project manager to have experience. It is an issue for the contractor and for the owner to decide who they appoint to these positions
