The project will produce an empirical guide to successful owner practices regarding roles, team integration, team behavior, delivery method, and project performance in the building design and construction industry. The research will develop a project delivery performance database that will support a variety of near-term and long-term products. The database will be the engine that informs a series of project deliverables to include owner’s manuals, written for various industry sectors and experience levels, which offer how-to guidance for setting up and participating in a successful project. The primary benefit to the construction industry is to provide a repeatable process for making highly effective, key project decisions. The researchers will work with the industry champions to ensure that the research products are relevant and contain concise, fact-based information for owner decision-making. The team will proactively disseminate these products through industry and academic channels for a wide and lasting benefit.
