In Verkehrswegebauprojekten des öffentlich finanzierten Infrastruktursektors treffen die jeweils unterschiedlichen Interessen der Beteiligten aufeinander und die traditionelle Projektabwicklungspraxis fördert opportunistisches Handeln. Mit dieser unkooperativen Situation, aus der niemand als Gewinner hervorgeht, sind die Beteiligten unzufrieden und der damit einhergehende Bedarf an kooperativen Abwicklungsformen in Deutschland ist entsprechend hoch. Dies wird von den Marktteilnehmern in der Literatur ebenso wie von diversen Branchen- und Feldstudien bestätigt. Aus dieser Problemstellung heraus wird unter Berücksichtigung der relevanten Besonderheiten und systemimmanenten Rahmenbedingungen ein Partnering-Modell entwickelt, welches die kooperative Zusammenarbeit von Auftraggeber und Auftragnehmer im öffentlichen Sektor unterstützt und die Chancen auf Effektivitäts- und Effizienzgewinn durch proaktive Kooperation stärkt.

This book is aimed at those who want to apply or improve the application of partnering in the construction and heavy engineering industries to their projects. It focuses on procurement aspects based on the premise that unless the commercial and contractual conditions align objectives, there is little stimulus to change the culture and integrate processes and teams to achieve the outstanding results that can be attained through partnering.This invaluable book presents detailed information about the partnering and procurement process, which will lead to better delivery of construction projects.

There are 1.5 million individual companies designing, engineering, constructing and managing the built environment in the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia. The main concern of these companies is their ability to thrive in a new global economy that is constantly changing, dauntingly complex and extremely competitive. Small firms compete locally, middle market firms compete regionally, large firms compete nationally and internationally; but the keys to success is about creating a competitive company. Drawing on a two-year research project to define the specific performance characteristics that most accurately identify consistently dominant competitors in the AEC industry, this title sets out to define 12 strategies that will drive the 21st century's most successful firms, regardless of size and location. Features include: Case studies from the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Real world examples of each of the 12 strategies. Industry leader quotes from around the world. Tools that allow readers to assess their firm's own level of 'competitiveness'

Construction, architecture and engineering projects are complex undertakings, involving a temporary grouping of people and companies, with different agendas and experience, coming together to achieve a project goal. This book investigates the dynamics of the relationships between individuals involved in architecture, engineering and construction projects. It combines a structured theoretical framework, derived from social psychology and mainstream management theory, with case studies and research from the built environment sector. Focusing on how people interact, communicate and work together, it examines how best to manage the interdisciplinary relationships that form and reform during the project life cycle. The book covers vital areas of project management, whose importance has recently come to be recognized, and will be valuable for students at both undergraduate and graduate level. Practitioners will also find it a useful insight into the social aspect of project management, with implications and applications that apply to all projects in the built environment sector.

Making Sense Of Construction Improvement

The book sets out deliberately to challenge the current construction improvement debate and the way in which it is conducted. It confronts the supposedly neutral nature of construction 'best practice' and demonstrates that that the advocated recipes seldom stand up to critical scrutiny. It further argues that commonly accepted components of best practice such as lean construction, partnering and collaborative working rarely live up to the claims made on their behalf. Such recipes invariably suffer from definitional vagueness, and are constantly reinterpreted to suit the needs the different audiences. Making Sense of Construction Improvement argues that construction sector improvement techniques cannot be understood in terms of their substantive content, and are best understood in terms of the rhetoric within which they are presented. The author also contends that the persuasiveness of such recipes depends upon the extent to which practitioners can adopt them for the purposes of making sense of the changes they observe happening around them. To be accepted as 'best practice' construction improvement techniques must also resonate with broader agendas of socio-technological change. The author charts how the best practice debate has developed from the aftermath of the Second World War through to the election of David Cameron's coalition government in 2010. Attention is given to the way in which the improvement debate throughout the 1960s and 70s was shaped by the broader aspirations of the post-war social consensus and the associated desire for a centrally planned economy. Attention thereafter is given to the way the construction sector was radically re-shaped by the advent of the enterprise culture. The privatisation of the sector's client base, coupled with the withdrawal of the state as a provider of mass housing, caused a significant and long-lasting shift in the construction landscape. Private sector clients similarly experienced extensive downsizing while outsourcing their procurement capabilities. Such strategies were frequently justified by mobilising the rhetoric of business process re-engineering (BPR). Contracting firms simultaneously faced unpredictable workloads and increasing market competition. In response, the sector at large chose to base their competitive advantage on leanness and agility. Hence the emergence of the hollowed-out firm as the dominant form of organising. These structural trends combined to provide the backcloth to the industry improvement agenda throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Making Sense of Construction Improvement argues that the popularity of improvement recipes such as partnering, collaborative working and integrated teams can be understood as strategies for overcoming the loss of control associated with downsizing and outsourcing. In contrast to other textbooks, Making Sense of Construction Improvement does not offer advice on how to manage construction projects more effectively; the aim is rather to understand the forces which have shaped the construction sector improvement agenda over time.

These books provide a practical step-by-step programme for introducing a total quality scheme into construction companies. They are the result of a five year study conducted by the European Construction Institute's TQ task force in conjunction with their 70 member companies and the Department of Environment. The resulting programme is devised from an examination of real construction companies working on real projects and has been widely tested in major companies. Implementing TQ in the construction industry is a reference book covering each stage of the programme in detail, from starting the programme and involving employees to measurement and benchmarking
