Open letter to the new Chief Construction Adviser

I felt moved to compose an open letter to our new construction czar….

Dear Mr Morrell

First, congratulations on your new appointment which is long overdue, particularly as it was more than 16 months ago that the House of Commons Business and Enterprise Committee recommended – in Constructing Matters (PDF) – the “creation of a post of Chief Construction Officer”.

As I wrote at the time, Constructing Matters was, however, something of a disappointment to me. Like another document published shortly before – the Strategy for Sustainable Construction (see post) – it failed to pay attention to better use of ICT tools within the UK construction industry.

The rest of this post is now at http://www.blog.pwcom.co.uk/2009/11/27/open-letter-to-the-new-chief-construction-adviser/
