Description

"The Local Government Association strongly recommends local authorities to use this Toolkit, which is an important and integral part of the Rethinking Construction initiative." - Sir Jeremy Beecham. Best Value requirements mean that all local authorities are facing the challenge of modernising practices and delivering quality services to local people. "The Rethinking Construction Implementation Toolkit" is the first ever practical guide to implement Rethinking Construction for local authorities, sign-posting the way to achieving better value for money and benefits for the local authority and community. It is the first guide to construction procurement aimed specifically at local authorities. The LGTF Toolkit equips local authorities with a valuable and practical guide to abandoning outdated and wasteful procurement practices in favour of 'smart' procurement as recommended by Sir John Egan in his Rethinking Construction report."Rethinking Construction" sets out clear targets for the industry, its supply chain and customers, including annual reductions of 10 percent on capital costs involved in construction, plus 10 percent gains in productivity, 10 percent reduction in construction time and 20 percent improvements in project predictability, the number of defects and the number of accidents on a project. Its key elements include: why local authorities need to implement a Rethinking Construction agenda; what they need to do in practical terms; how they can do it describing: tools, uses, handling tips, extra tools available and connections to other organisations; frequently used excuses; and, checklist for individual key players involved in the process. "The Toolkit" will be essential reading for all involved with local government.show more
