The term of a construction team is clarified as embodying the developer, contractor and architect. The construction teams of developer and contractor differ from the aspect of responsibilities, cost control system implemented and contractual relationships within project delivery system which cause the conflict issues. The main objective of this research regarding the developer and contractor is to investigate their respective responsibilities, to identify the cost control system implemented and to determine their inter-contractual relationships within project delivery systems. The research is carried out through literature review and questionnaire method. Based on the literature review, seventeen different duties of developer and contractor are outlined. The purposes, outputs, importance and concepts implementing cost control system and their contractual relationships within the Traditional, Turnkey and Construction management method are determined too. The questionnaire method is conducted with distributing questionnaire of 30 questions to 50 respondents from developer and contractor firms through site visit.
