Heldt, T., Hampson, Keith D., Murphy, S., Wood, P, Deck, S., & Tucker, S. (1997) Innovative project procurement in the Queensland government : the Woodford Correctional Centre. In Construction process re-engineering : proceedings of the International Conference on Construction Process Re-engineering, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Qld, pp. 281-292.
Much of the effort of the construction industry is directed towards the provision of services and products, many with substantial long term implications. Systems and procedures have evolved over centuries to provide these services and products, but inefficiencies have developed. One strategy for improving the efficiency of the construction industry is to restructure the systems and procedures which deliver projects so that improved benefits to the end users are provided. In this paper, contemporary systems and procedures for the delivery of projects are reviewed and the roles of the major stakeholders are examined. The recent construction of Woodford Correctional Centre in Queensland is reviewed as a case study in restructuring the delivery process and the lessons learned from this successful project are summarised.
