To continue the economic growth that our country has enjoyed for over 2 decades, the government is encouraging competition, innovation and entrepreneurship to keep productivity at healthy levels in the construction industry.
During the latest Construction Leaders Forum hosted by the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales, 25 leaders from the country’s largest contractors united to shared their ideas about how to increase innovation and productivity in the building sector. The event was supported by the Australian Constructors Association and the Australian Institute of Building.
In an article on Sourceable.net, some of the suggestions put forward during the talks were highlighted including
- increasing the predictability of delivery
- Drive greater integration and collaboration
- Move to a service-based rather than a product-based delivery model
- Engage new technologies
