Collaboration among key stakeholders is essential to the success of construction projects all over the world. Project participants have all agreed that collaboration among clients, contractors and consultants is one of the important ingredients for successful contracts and good contractual relationships.
Unfortunately, in Ghana there seems to be a complete disregard or ignorance of the provisions of the contract concerning the relationship among these stakeholders. This is seen especially between the main contractor and consultants resulting sometimes in a situation where some consultants are tempted to think that the main contractor is a subordinate to them and they treat them as such.

The article will also emphasize the need for mutual respect, cooperation and collaboration towards achieving the overall success of projects in the country.
