The Case for Project Team Integration

Integrating project teams to create, sustain and encourage collaborative behaviour is vital to improving efficiency and productivity, reducing wasted effort, and minimising disputes. The greater the level of project team integration, the greater the team’s ability to collaborate on the design, cost plan and allocation of risk before construction begins.
