Overview

With rapid changes in procurement processes and increasing pressure for improvement, cohesion and efficiency, practitioners need to be aware of industry-wide generally acknowledged best practice. The recent Latham and Egan reports in the UK have spurred further intitiatives from the demand side of the industry to speed the pace of reform. This text examines those new initiatives, clearly explaining and comparing them with each other and with similar initiatives from other countries such as the USA or Singapore, and painting a vivid picture of the future of the construction industry under the effects of such changes. Aimed at anyone involved in construction supply chain from supplier to end user.
