Discussion on Anything You Can Do?.....Towards a More Efficient Industry

The construction industry has undergone heavy criticism and self analysis over the last few years. Two studies, one by NEDO and the other by Slough Estates Limited were of particular interest, not least, because they were specific. Both found that from conception to execution of the building, the industry compares poorly with those of other countries. Another investigation carried out by the Building and Engineering EDC's-'The professions in the construction industries' was primarily based on interviews and contains many opinions on shortcomings3and suggests many themes for further study.
