Can anyone share the CxA practice for LEED project in USA or other countries as we see that there are the overlap activities between the construction management consultant and CxA for LEED projects in Thailand.
In Thailand, we have construction management consultant who is engaged by the owner and act as the owner's representative for coordinating and facilitating the construction works. The construction management consultant also leads and oversees the prefunctional and functional tests. The consultant management consultant has its own engineers, inspectors and technicians for inspecting the installation and witnessing the functional test.
For the project that pursue LEED NC certification, the project have to engage CxA as per EAp1's requirement. The CxA also bring their engineers, inspectors and technician for inspecting the installation and witnessing the functional test. It seems that we have two parties perform the same works which we see little added benefit for this situation.
Can anyone share that there is any overlap activities between the construction management consultant and CxA for the LEED projects in other countries and how to resolve this overlap activities while maintaining the compliance with the EAp1's requirements.
Thank you very much
