About the Project
To date, the data revealed that the benefits for implementing quality management system properly can be huge, as it is estimated that the cost of rework in the UK (£5bn) is about 5 per cent of the value of every project. This shows evidently the urgency for focus in quality management of the whole project management process. However, this requires shifting mind-sets as well as shifting behaviours by viewing and implementing a quality management system as built-in rather than bolt-on. As a result, there was broad consensus that the culture of construction industry needs to change in terms addressing quality and this change must be driven by Clients.
At present, there are limited studies on looking at quality across the different stages of construction. Particularly, the use of digital technology in managing quality in construction. The research also ascertains what could be done to share information of construction quality throughout the use of digital technology, and to create a shared culture of quality between partners. The need for client lead in the digital environment will be reiterated throughout the research.
