The Construction Playbook
As promised a few weeks ago, the government issued a Construction Playbook, which aims to show how the government will work with industry to make sure public works are delivered faster, better, and more sustainably.
Specific measures include clarity around the public pipeline which will enable suppliers to invest in new technologies and modern methods of construction. This will be supported by a commitment to standardisation across projects.
The document also reinforces the importance of teamwork, properly understanding a project, and fair bidding practices.
