NEW: PROCURING INNOVATION IN CONSTRUCTION (MAY 17, 2017)
The British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA) has published a follow-up to its Innovation Report (February 2016), which revealed BC’s construction sector lags behind other jurisdictions when it comes to innovation. The new report is called “Procuring Innovation in Construction” and lays out the case for the sector to recognize the procurement process as they key for driving innovative projects and sector development.
“Margins are tight and business have to operate profitability, yet if we don’t innovate we’re in danger of undermining our collective ability to compete. The sector has to introduce whole-life value to the process.”
President, BC Construction Association
