The performance of the construction industry has been a constant source of criticism and review for many years in the UK and a variety of other countries, and this has culminated in a series of major initiatives aimed at changing the combative nature of the industry to one that effectively provides the service clients say they want. There has been interest in the issues, but little consensus on how to move forward. Following a number of research initiatives a seven part model has been developed. It has been made possible to set out challenges for various key stakeholders and make clear proposals regarding progressive implementation drawing from various national experiences. The seven key areas for action are: - A holistic notion of construction - A shared vision amongst stakeholders - A balance between markets and social capital - Dynamic decisions and information - Evolving knowledge and attitudes - Awareness of the systemic contribution of construction - Promotion of the full value delivered to society Features of this book: - Takes a global perspective on the ways forward for the construction industry. - Identifies seven key areas for action, and the connections between them. - Based on results from a series of international conferences, survey questionnaires and workshops. - Published in association with CIB - the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction
