This report examines the concept of a co-ordinated team of developer, architect, engineer and management contractor whose sole interest is that of the client. Such a unit could overcome most of the traditional problems which demonstrate the building industry’s lack of control, lack of teamwork, lack of understanding and unnecessary complexity. Productivity, cost control in design, prefabrication of materials and organisation of site labour are some of the important topics discussed from the point of view of a central management unit.
