International Construction Projects Committee (Lead)


Collaboration has been much discussed in the construction industry but has often been elusive. However, to meet the needs of both large-scale and complex infrastructure contracts, often involving cutting-edge processes and technologies, and the plethora of other construction and engineering projects which require to be delivered, there is an increase in popularity of non-traditional forms of contracting – framework agreements, multi-party contracts and alliancing contracting. These are not yet the go-to procurement or delivery routes but there is a clear direction of travel towards more collaborative forms of contracting. This session will explore whether we are entering a new era of collaborative working in the infrastructure, construction and engineering sector and the models being developed to support this.
