Construction procurement systems: a linkage with project organisational models

Michael Murray, David Langford

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

This paper constitutes a literature review undertaken at the start of a two and a half year EPSRC funded research project. As such, its purpose is to present the details of the ‘re-search’concerning construction procurement and project organizational design. The paper shows that the ‘post -Latham’construction industry provides several new developments (client power, partnering, concurrent engineering etc) which are altering the construction project process, and therefore prove worthy vehicles for investigation into project organizational structures.
