Collaborative Relationships in Construction: Developing Frameworks and Networks by Hedley Smyth
English | Sep. 2, 2008 | ISBN: 1405180412 | 260 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
The book collects the latest research on both contractual and conceptual collaborative practices in construction. It identifies common problems faced by the industry and draws out practical implications.
Construction projects are increasingly run in ways that undermine the traditional boundary of the firm and sometimes also the definition of the project coalition. This poses challenges for construction firms whose clients demand ever increasing performance improvements as well as those firms who want to improve their strategies for greater collaboration to give themselves competitive advantage.
