Built assets are typically the largest investments made by both public- and private-sector clients. In the past Constructing Excellence (CE) has made a priority of examining how outcome-value can be locked into the briefing, design, construction and commissioning of buildings and infrastructure.
CE have now published their report “Delivering built- asset operational performance excellence – Insight and tips from construction clients and supply chains”. This report summarises an approach to delivering more value during the operational phase of buildings, based on lessons learnt, insight and tips shared by major construction clients and CE members, with the asset management group, over the last few years.
The asset management group has been chaired by John O’Brien – Founder and MD, LCMB over the last few years. Over the next two years, CE are proposing to use funding secured as part of the Whole Life Performance Plus (www.wlpplus.com) project consortium supported by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, and Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council to build on the work detailed in their report.
“I have had the privilege of chairing CE’s asset management group over the last four years and would like to thank all the Constructing Excellence member organisations who attended and contributed to our workshops and those that presented and shared their ideas and lessons learnt. I do hope that this new report proves of value to construction clients, supply chains and CE Members.”
John O’Brien, Chairman
CE have created a programme to the beginning of 2018 based on feedback from CE members and the asset management task group, as to which topic are the most pressing. The programme is detailed below:
