Collaborative Contracting in the Post-COVID Era



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the built environment faces contractual issues. As the industry undergoes transformation in different areas, stakeholder collaboration needs to evolve. There are a wide range of problems associated with traditional contracting processes, such as stakeholders acting in silos and lack of coordination between employers, consultants and contractors during the design and construction phases of projects. In turn, this results in disputes during the construction phase, which in turn delays project delivery. The key to transforming the built environment is to use collaborative contracting.

In this webinar there are five speakers from Singapore including a director from the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore. They discuss collaborative contracting through case studies from both local and international contexts as well as examining the implementation of projects and practices.  The main objectives of Collaborative Contracting are to address the problems associated with the traditional contracting project delivery model. Furthermore, it facilitates early involvement of contractors in the design phase, which would enhance coordination among various stakeholders.

This webinar teaches how successful collaborative contracting has been in projects in Singapore as well as focussing on its major challenges. It covers how to choose a suitable collaborative contracting model, ranging from a partnering model to a project alliance model amongst others.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
