Abstract


Provides an overview on the development of information production in construction. It is suggested that there is a need for the professional organisations to re‐think the way they produce project information so that the opacity in current project information is replaced by transparency so that all the stakeholders in the procurement process can move from their adversarial/bargaining positions to one that encourages a team problem‐solving approach.
