Quality counts

  • Comment

Perhaps Design Quality Indicators could help. The launch of the online version of these tools, for establishing and monitoring the significance of design during the entire construction process, took place last night, with a speech of encouragement from Peter Gershon of the Office of Government Commerce, a sort of provisional wing of the Treasury.

The indicators are intended to make it possible for clients to understand how decisions they make at the outset of projects about the role of design can be managed; the system, developed by the Construction Industry Council, tries to put numbers on qualitative matters, for example by encouraging thinking about the weighting given to design issues in assessing PFI bids.

Perhaps the subsequent phases of the Treasury HQ will benefit.
