We all know how critical supply chains are to construction and infrastructure projects.
What kind of risks exist within these supply chains and how aware are we of them?
Download the research report Building in the Dark - Construction Supply Chain Risk: Challenges, Responses & Opportunities, as featured on the AFR, to find out more.
Asset owners, builders and managers have a unique position due to their heavily service-focused supply chains, often with a high concentration of high-risk subcontractors. In particular, project-based organisations also have to rapidly generate and degenerate their supply chains.
Much of the publicly available research and information available on supply chain risk mitigation is focused on sectors with more stable supply chains, such as manufacturing. We wanted to provide a deeper understanding of risk in sectors with more dynamic supply networks.
“The sector is infamous for its risk, which invariably requires organisations to seek appropriate shelter from those risks and build in the daytime with risk identified and managed. To assist with this, I recommend that stakeholders read the Building In The Dark report.”
“The construction industry has been building in the dark for many decades – it is pleasing to see that a light has been turned on this topic at last..”
