Abstract/Summary

Separation of design from construction has led to serious coordination and communication problems in our industry, which are unlikely to be resolved by BIM without significant changes. Although collaborative design and construction methods have been developed for major projects, over 80% of all construction projects still suffer from a divisive risk management culture, which perpetuates problems of integration between briefing, design and construction. Design-led procurement facilitates the engagement of trade and specialist contractors in the briefing and design process. Designers lead the supervision of work on site, thereby bridging the gaps between briefing, design and construction. Network governance supported by Project Insurance, instead of Professional Indemnity Insurance, facilitates the optimization between briefing, design and construction. A new paradigm has to be established to disentangle long established routines across the design and construction professions.
