A critical review of the theory and practice of collaborative working in construction

Decisive leadership and an overhaul of contractual structures, procurement processes and behaviours are crucial to embracing collaborative practices in order to drive greater efficiency across the construction industry, says international law firm Pinsent Masons. In the firm's inaugural report 'Collaborative Construction: More Myth than Reality?' construction experts outline a critical need for a cultural shift to ensure collaborative disciplines are adopted across the industry. The report highlights a number of barriers to collaborative construction. These include the view that collaborative methods will be more costly, time consuming and resource hungry as well as inertia prompted by reluctance to adopt new practices and a lack of leadership promoting industry-wide best practice.
