Essay about Future Project Analysis: Factors and Risks
1. “What do you consider is the best delivery model for this project? Please explain you answer with reference to the nature of the project, the risk, and the division of responsibility.”
PROJECT: The construction of a chocolate manufacturing factory and shop in Onehunga, Auckland.

GMP can be interpreted wrongly by inefficient CMs, which can ultimately land the owner in deep trouble.
Costs more than traditional bid due to reduced competition in pricing of contractor,
