Construction Productivity is at a 15-year low: Why?21 May 2012
The paper mentions that the construction productivity in 2012 is much lower than that of 1997 and witnessed a steady decline since 2005.
Mentioning that there is a misalignment between the project owner's focus on project production and the contractor's need for job productivity, the white paper calls for a serious attention.
Matt Stevens, the author of the white paper, says that the industry needs standardized good operating practices, specific methods that are correlated to improved construction performance.
Since installation processes can pose costs and risks, the focus of all the stakeholders involving in construction should be on efficient construction practices.
