Tackling short-termism in construction
The construction industry in Europe is facing fierce competition. Cost competition and international trade pressures are leading to short-term and low-margin planning. This comes at a time when urban design is becoming more complex and needs to evolve to be more adept at managing new forms of mobility, lifestyle, leisure and growing urban populations. Can business leaders balance cost pressures with the needs of sustainable planning? How can complex construction projects be sufficiently funded and how can their construction risks be effectively managed?
