Traditionally, construction has been a fragmented process. Even today, despite BIM and other advancements in collaborative tools, project team members still primarily work in silos, making it difficult to reach common project goals.
Many contractors admit that things have to change. So do project owners. In fact, 82% of project owners expect greater owner/contractor collaboration over the next five years, according to the 2015 Construction Project Owner’s Survey, conducted by KPMG International.
