Engineers Australia – Thought Leaders Series: Supply chain and project delivery webinar

In this webinar, our CEO Jon Davies shares his views on the interconnectedness of the construction industry. In order to address these challenges we need to shift our thinking of how the construction industry works from an industry made up of defined sectors, tiers and linear supply chains to a highly connected, complex network of suppliers, trades, designers, contractors and clients.

Engineers Australia Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Stimulus and Recovery Funding – A project owner perspective (March 2021)

“Construction is often viewed as a zero-sum game. If I win, you lose. We don’t spend enough time at the front end of the job aligning expectations and outcomes – if we did it is possible to have a win win outcome. We can get more bang for buck if we spend more time up front aligning interests, so we are all working together if problems arise.” These are just some of the important points our CEO Jon Davies raised at the webinar.
