Over the last decades, construction projects have continually become much more dynamic in nature, largely due to the increasing complexity and uncertainty of these projects, along with tight budgets and time constraints.
To address this, and to meet the needs of large-scale and complex infrastructure contracts, the Alliancing form of contracting has been developing. It is now gaining increasing traction in a number of countries around the world and its popularity is growing. It is by no means yet mainstream, but we see a clear direction of travel in favour of this form of contracting which we anticipate will increase over the short to medium term.
We are therefore delighted to present this joint CMS and Arcadis publication: “Guide to Contract Alliancing” to capture the key aspects of this form of contracting and to present the current take-up of Alliancing around the world.
