Procuring and managing design for infrastructure projects

Start date 01/08/2010

​Large physical infrastructure projects are complex, lengthy endeavours usually initiated on a political level and managed by public clients. Many important decisions are made in early design phases, when the knowledge of numerous technical specialists is integrated to balance cost, quality and scope over the whole project lifecycle. Since projects and their contexts are unique, there are no comprehensive standard models for how to organise decision making in these early phases.

This research project look into large projects within the Swedish Transport Administration. The aim is to understand how design organizations are formed and develop over time, as well as the effects on project coordination.
