Successful Structural Design Within an 'Alliance' Contract

Britannia is a large North Sea gasfield. Its successful development was dependent on the project being executed within challenging budget controls. To promote this the project was carried out as an alliance between clients and contractors where rewards were dependent on total project cost and performance. The aim was to align client and contractor skills towards the common goals of creating safe and quality facilities, below cost targets, sharing the profits of success. C. Blow, M.A/ O'Donnell, R.M. Hodges and I. Wright
