The scottish construction centre: support for innovation and excellence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The establishment of Scottish Construction Centre (SCC) aims to highlight the need for improvement of the industry's performance for a more connected and innovative construction industry and for the recognition of the industry's contribution to the Scottish economy. SCC aims to increase awareness of best practice, stimulate industry to innovate, and promote and encourage suitable training. The objective of SCC five-year program is to have a measurable and positive impact, focus on issues it can affect, and facilitate continuous improvement. The ERDF funding to the University of Dundee for research and knowledge transfer allows SCC to extend its existing core programs and diversify them with workshops on Lean Construction and Whole Life Costing. The SCC has collaborated with Fife Construction Forum in the organization and deliver various consultation events across Scotland in January 2009.
