The Latham Report
Summary

There are interesting parallels as well as interesting differences between the problems identified and solutions recommended in Sir Michael Latham's Report, Constructing the Team, and the state of the U.S. Construction Industry in the mid-1990s. The parallels support the conclusion that the problems facing the construction industry worldwide are universal, while the differences can be explained by reference to differing approaches to project organisation. This paper reviews selected chapters from the Report (Three -- "Project and Contract Strategies and Briefing"; and Nine -- "Dispute Resolution"), compares the problems identified therein with the current situation in the U.S., and compares the various recommendations with current trends or practices in the U.S. construction industry. The paper will then endeavour to rationalise the parallels and differences by references to differing approaches to project organisation and to the underlying social, political, and legal factors in each country. The paper will conclude by attempting to discern what can be learned from the previous analysis by construction professionals on both sides of the Atlantic.

Presented at Strathclyde University, Glasgow, Scotland August 1996.

Published as "CIB Working Commission 65 Organisation and Management of Construction Symposium," Conseil International du Bâtiment (London, E&FN Spon, 1996), D. Langford, editor.
