Blake Dawson recently presented to ACIF the third in a series of reports, 'Scope for Improvement'. Research into the construction industry over 6 years, the report outlines the key reasons for the project problems such as late dellivery and over budget.

While the report finds that the industry has improved since the first report in 2006, still only 48% of the $55 billion in projects surveyed were delivered on time, on budget or to the required quality - so that means that 52% were not.

A key strategy for improvement is through increased co-operation and communication, achievable with integrated project teams - from the client through to construction to property mangement - working together throughout the project.
