Abstract

The report examines design and build as a major and expanding procurement system in the UK construction industry. The procedures of four typical D&B firms are studied and analysed to assess the nature of the interface between design and production. The inherent strengths and weaknesses are identified and proposals made for the development of management systems that individual firms could utilise to enhance the quality of process and product. The proposed management systems are designed to form the basis of an operational manual that firms could develop to guide the management of procedures within their design and construction departments. Issues such as planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, motivation, system audits and reviews as well as the delegation of roles and responsibilities are discussed.
