Description - Buildings That Work for Your Business by

Property decisions are business-critical. The right buildings can increase productivity and morale, while improving your company's standing among customers and suppliers. For many companies, building from scratch is the only way to get what they need. Construction projects, however, are notoriously complex and unpredictable. If they are poorly managed, they can easily result in huge delays and cost over-runs. Involving many interested parties - clients, architects, engineers, consultants, builders and their suppliers - they can be fraught with conflicts. And the cost of project failure can be high, often ending in courtroom battles and deflated share values. "Buildings That Work for Your Business" explains how to minimise the risks and maximise the rewards of new-build projects. Written by experts in the field, it includes advice to directors on: setting objectives and thorough planning; balancing the critical success factors - cost, time and quality; commissioning professional advisers and contractors; and, managing the project - and resolving disputes.
