DQI at Revaluing Construction 2007

Posted: 7th December 2007

The DQI Manager, William Hawkins was invited to present the DQI methodology, approach and findings at the ‘Revaluing Construction 2007’ conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. William presented alongside speakers from France and Denmark addressing how to engage stakeholders in the briefing and design processes.
DQI was well received by the audience, which was made up of construction professionals, clients and academic organisations from Europe and further afield. There was a lot of positive feedback about the rigor of the approach and how this can help ensure projects deliver what users and clients need and want. There was particular interest in how the process can help bridge the gap between brief and design in public sector projects where the design is part of competitive tendering, such as PFI. It is apparent that this is a real problem shared by European countries following EU procurement rules.
