Debate 11 - Paper 2

Right First Time?

John Armitt CBE, Chief Executive of Costain Group
  • The Industry does not have a good reputation.
    • There are many reasons for this:
    • Education emphasis in the UK
    • Non-certification of companies and labour
    • Poor safety performance
    • Low barriers to entry
    • Separation of design and production
    • Poor advice to Clients by Professions

All of these will impact on quality of results.

Cannot cover all of these issues in one session.

  • Therefore focus will be on PROCESS
    • Will examine three real projects
    • Review process and inter-relationships between Client, Advisors, Designers and Contractors
    • Look at results for the parties
    • Draw lessons from failure and success
