Abstract

DLG, a medium-sized London-based architectural practice, had an innovative IT strategy. In 1999 they acquired a web enabled document management system which could manage a large amount of technical data and facilitate real time updates on drawings. This enhanced the partnership''s potential to offer a one-stop-shop for clients to access project information. DLG participated in the Construction Best Practice Programme / Tomorrow''s Company Construction Pathfinder, a programme which involved companies working together to share ideas and techniques in business development. Through this process DLG identified the potential for a new business venture. They explored the skills, knowledge and abilities required to launch an IT-based business and contemplated the industry wide impact of such a management system on accountability, adaptability and transparency within the complex web of construction industry relationships.
