Productivity in the building industry over the past five decades has flat-lined or declined relative to all other non-farm industries – regardless significant innovation and technological advancement. Seventy percent of all projects end over budget and delivered late. The building industry is a fragmented, adversarial process that commonly results in dissatisfied building owners and disappointment or bitterness for everyone involved - designers, builders and suppliers. No one really wins. Research has concluded this lack of productivity is due to a number of root causes. In excess of 50% of planning, design and construction processes is consumed in waste.
