Incorporating Collaborative Partnering into Traditional Airport Construction Projects

Airport construction projects are extremely complex and prone to claims, delays, budget overruns, and sometimes litigation. Construction partnering was originally developed by the Army Corps of Engineers in the 1980s as a means to reduce litigation on construction projects. Since that time, partnering has evolved into a more structured process known as collaborative partnering and has been accepted by the construction industry as a best practice. There has been an interest in collaborative partnering in the aviation sectors and several airports have utilized the process.
