Abstract:

Aligning both owner and contractor objectives is widely thought to be a catalyst for better project performance. For this very reason, contract incentives are employed in order to identify and ensure focus on the owners goals. The scope of this report is to research the extent of use and consequent effects of construction contract incentives offered by owners. The relative use by owners of construction phase incentives will be characterized, and an incentive use index assigned to each project. Additionally, the impacts of incentive use in terms of cost, schedule, and safety will be investigated. A relationship between the relative incentive use incentive index and project performance will also be examined.
