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. More specifically Procurement routes for partnering looks at: A practical model for applying partnering in your projects. The principles and tools - as well as a generic process for developing any procurement strategy. A review of traditional contractual arrangements; when to use them and their suitability for partnering. The concepts, process and mechanisms for developing a balanced incentive plan. Specific considerations when using incentives to improve time, quality, performance in use, service and/or health and safety. The ten key implementation points when using target and reimbursable contracts. When to use alliances - both project and strategic, and their key implementation points from a procurement perspective. Written in accessible language and using accelerated learning techniques to promote comprehension and retention, Procurement Routes for Partnering translates leading edge thinking and academic rigour to the level of practical application. It is a 'must read' for any construction professional involved in setting up a partnering relationship.

From the Foreword by Rob Smith, Director of Estates and Facilities (NHS England), Department of Health ‘The built environment for the delivery of Healthcare will continue to change as it responds to new technologies and modalities of care, different expectations and requirements of providers and consumers of care. It is vital that built environment students and practitioners alike avail themselves of the best possible information to guide them in their studies, continuing professional development and the delivery of their tasks. The range is enormous from the assessment of need, planning the service delivery to design, construction, commissioning, maintenance and operation of the healthcare environment. The book that follows addresses these areas from a blend of contributions of experienced practitioners to the descriptions of the output from recent research that moves forward the frontiers of knowledge and practice in the many areas of the healthcare built environment. I happily commend this book to all engaged in the exciting fields of planning, delivering, maintaining and operating healthcare environments. When we get it right, we are able to do immeasurable good.’ This book helps academic researchers as well as practitioners to understand how the healthcare infrastructure sector works by addressing the crucial issue of healthcare delivery from a built environment perspective. It explains the trends in healthcare, models of healthcare delivery; healthcare planning; the NHS building and investment programmes; the procurement process; and facilities management; financial models – including PFI and LIFT; risk allocation and partnering. Past investigations in the area of healthcare delivery have concentrated on either the medical aspects or the design issues of buildings but Improving Healthcare through Built Environment Infrastructure is unique in considering the ‘meeting space’ of built environment technologies and modern methods of procurement with the medical and operational needs of healthcare settings. The authors have brought together key industrialists and academics, all heavily involved in the formulation and delivery of new practices. Case studies illustrate how policies and healthcare models are implemented in practice and help identify the key challenges for the future.

Managing Change in Construction Projects: a knowledge-based approach offers a new perspective on construction project change by viewing the process of change management as a knowledge-intensive activity, where team members bring their tacit and explicit knowledge into the situation; share, create and capture this collective knowledge for future re-use in similar situations. Through this knowledge-based approach, construction teams can successfully resolve and learn from change events, leading to an overall improved performance of the industry. The book will make a significant contribution to our understanding of construction project change by offering new theoretical and practical insights and models grounded in results of case studies conducted within two collaborative construction project team settings. By demonstrating how the social construction of knowledge works in construction settings, the authors challenge the prevailing change management solutions based on ‘hard’ IT approaches. They put forward a balanced view that incorporates both IT–based and socially constructed approaches to effective management of construction project change. helps construction managers to improve and learn through the process of construction project change presents new theoretical models and offers practical guidelines first research-based book to directly address project change from a knowledge-based perspective draws on detailed studies with construction companies, including Ballast Construction and Kier Construction encourages a move from the information driven, process integrated approach to a knowledge-based view

Sponsored by the Construction Quality Management and Inspection Committee of the Owners Directorate of the Construction Institute of ASCE. Quality in the Constructed Project: A Guide for Owners, Designers, and Constructors, third edition, provides information and recommendations on principles and procedures that are effective in enhancing the quality of constructed projects. The guide?a complete update of the previous edition?discusses the roles, responsibilities, requirements, and limits of authority of participants in the design and construction process, highlighting concepts and practices that are valuable to each in achieving project goals and objectives. This Manual of Practice presents several key themes, including the value of clearly defining and assigning responsibilities, the importance of teamwork, the need for clear contractual provisions, strategies for good communication, the owner's selection process for other team members, the potential benefits associated with various project delivery systems, and procedures for managing design and construction. Although this guide is written primarily with traditional design-bid-build (DBB) projects in mind, it also highlights areas in which alternative forms of project delivery, such as design-build, may shift project responsibilities and risk to different participants. Chapters include: owner's role and requirements; project delivery systems; project team; coordination and communication; selecting the design professional; agreement for professional services; alternative studies and project impacts; planning and managing design; design discipline coordination; guidelines for design activities; precontract planning for construction; construction team; procedures for selecting the constructor; construction contract; planning and managing construction; construction contract documentation and submittals; construction contract administration; operation and maintenance; quality assurance and quality control; computer technology and project delivery; peer review; risk, liability, and avoiding conflict; partnering; and value engineering. MOP 73 will be useful to owners, design professionals, and constructors interested in enhancing the quality of constructed 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'
