Procuring buildings that balance good design and whole-of-life costs - IACCM APAC Conference 2019
Author: Steve Kennedy, Partner, Kennedy Associates Architects; Former National President, Association of Consulting Architects Australia
The Association of Consulting Architects prepared an Industry Discussion Paper on Procuring Architectural Services. This paper aims to provoke conversation and thought about the role procurement practice plays in the development of our cities and communities. It sought to inform clients about the fundamentals of good procurement, as opposed to poor procurement processes which can entrench problems at the beginning of a project and lead to inefficient processes, high on-costs, increased long-term life-cycle costs and safety issues. Yet, with the examples of the cladding fires in the Grenfell Tower in London and Neo200 building in Melbourne, we continue to see issues with procuring goods and services which don't allow for the whole-of-life, and potentially, loss-of-life, costs.
