There is widespread recognition that the UK construction industry must embrace new and better ways of working if it is to remain competitive and meet the needs of its ever demanding clients. Project delivery in construction is highly dependent on the effectiveness of the team put together to execute the project.

In many cases this is a function of how well members of the team work collaboratively and how effective the communications infrastructure used by the team is. Significant efforts have been invested in recent years to develop tools and techniques that enable distributed teams of professionals to work collaboratively. Some of these systems were able to improve some aspects of collaborative working but did not address the dynamics of construction organisations, projects, and processes sufficiently enough. The business and cultural environments within which collaboration takes place still remain important issues to be investigated.
