Overview

Faster,cheaper,safer construction projects through partnering. Partnering: it's the innovative solution for A/E firms: contractors,subcontractors—even government agencies—to join forces with each other and with employees and clients to slash costs,and much more. Partnering in Design and Construction,by Kneeland A. Godfrey,Jr. expands the narrow single-project definition of partnering to show you how to forge multi-project or strategic relationships—develop win-win relationships with women and minority employees—promote total quality management—and enter successful design-build contracts with design firms. And it's packed with dramatic case histories—from a drilling subcontractor who show how partnering saved his firm's reputation (and $25,000 in rework) to the Denver office of OSHA,whose groundbreaking partnering approach with contractors it calls "negotiated rulemaking.
