Details

A study of how the partners worked together during a large coastal reconstruction project has provided some important lessons for managing similar projects in the future. Open book accounting, regular meetings of all partners, joint working and continuous monitoring were shown to be invaluable to the success of the project, especially when problems arose during construction. A contract with inbuilt partnering arrangements worked well.
