The current landscape
There is a real situation within the engineering and construction sector whereby the industry lags behind other markets in governance, process and efficiency, transfer of knowledge and essential core principles.
We still work in an industry where old process of manufacturing exist similar to those followed decades ago – site built work process, with minimal automation and low efficiency.
One significant issue is the ‘bespoke’ led attitude towards project delivery where we constantly fail to understand any lessons taken from the previous project, should we focus on how to better our work the yields generated would certainly provide an efficient way of building. To put this into perspective the industry has become a gap of productivity, poor time delivery and failure to achieve budget delivery.
Living in the UK provides a better start than those in the LEDC (less economical developing countries) where projects remain reliant on low skilled labour, less automation (in fact no machines in some circumstances)
and poorly maintained equipment. We can therefore comment that the LEDC’s compared to the MEDC’s (more economical developing countries) have assets of a low quality.
Time is critical in the fast pace society we now find ourselves in, it is so prevalent in all aspects of our lives it has become the favoured critic of our industry, having the phase “late” can be seen as a foul word in the dictionary for construction.
One aspect of speed improvement will be the removal of widely used concrete (other than the foundations) which can reduce the build process by an average 2 weeks should you take into account the curing cycle. Overall the weight of thebuildings reduces therefore, so do costs…
