Abstract

In the United Kingdom, partnering was proposed by Sir Michael Latham as a means of achieving 30% cost savings in a suitable organizational climate. How this is achieved within the construction industry involves not only a mutuality of purpose between project personnel, but appropriately applied methods of process. This paper addresses the issues surrounding the way forward in partnering. By applying systematic processes to selecting partners on a short-term construction project, a case study demonstrates that cooperative working can be developed and conflict can be avoided. A unique and rigorous selection methodology known as the project delivery process was adopted for the Forton Lake Opening Bridge Millennium project in the United Kingdom, and demonstrates how significant improvements may be achieved in line with worldwide improvement targets.
