Collaborating for success

The concept of collaboration is not new, however, transitioning to this approach in a commercial business context, in which companies collaborate, can be challenging.

Our sector has a reputation for adversarial contracting, delays and overrunning costs with a focus on risk transfer and claims.

Collaborative business relationships have been shown to deliver a wide range of benefits, which enhance competitiveness and performance whilst adding value to organisations of all sizes. The publication of the ISO 44001 is a unique landmark for business.

Collaboration between organisations may take many forms from loose tactical approaches through to longer term alliances or joint ventures. ISO 44001 does not enforce a single rigid approach and recognises that every relationship has its own unique considerations whilst harnessing a range of benefits.

Working collaboratively will become increasingly critical to the built environment sector as the demand for increased digitisation and industrialisation grows. This is an essential skill for the future of our industry.
