User-Clients’ Goals and the Construction Project Management Process
Paper in proceedings, 2006
This paper report from an ongoing project aimed to develop and suggest methods supporting innovative and effective collaboration between clients and construction project management regarding project objectives. An approach to the establishment of client requirements by focusing the project management processes during the briefing, design and production phase of construction projects. Workshops with construction clients form the empirical base. The overriding aim is to explore the managerial support, facilitation and implementation of client requirements and to create knowledge of the relationship between an effective achievement of clients’ goals and the construction project management process. Such knowledge should make it possible to create methods for facilitating construction briefing and project management. It will also support the provision of facilities. The development of such knowledge could be of particular interest for client representatives, project managers, development managers, facilities managers and design managers in the construction sector.
