Partnering and Collaborative Working
Although partnering may still be considered as a relatively new concept of working for the construction sector, it is a process that has been adopted by a number of those operating in the industry. This is both in terms of projects that have now been completed and as part of future procurement strategies. This chapter sets out a number of case studies demonstrating how partnering can work in practice. These range from the early example of Kent Property Services dating back to 1995, through to a recent arrangement concluded by Scottish Water that, at the time of writing, is about to get underway.
