The value of good built facilities in use for clients and end users far outweigh the costs of design, construction and operation. The precise ratios differ for every client and every facility, but understanding the business case in this way at the outset of a project is vital for success.
We support the government-industry strategy Construction 2025 and accelerate the speed at which engaged players achieve the targets for improvement.
Our vision is that within a decade:
- The sector will be attractive for investment and as a career, both at home and internationally
- Business relationships between client and supply side will have changed radically, success will depend on delivering and exceeding client’s desired outcomes
- Exceptional performance will mean collaborative working and BIM to enable lean processes
- All organisations will be measuring, reporting and sharing data about performance
- Better procurement will provide for appropriate profit and encourage innovation
- Aligned commercial incentives will give the supply side ‘skin in the game’ to support best whole life outcomes
- Reward for value will be the way of getting paid.
