Construction regulated by performance information

Dean T. Kashiwagi, Chad T. Halmrast

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Performance Based Studies Research Group (PBSRG) has developed a methodology to process information to reduce risk and cost while at the same time improving construction performance and industry stability. The methodology reshapes the construction environment, changes roles and partnerships, and provides facility owners with a new method of communicating requirements to constructors. The new performance approach allows facility owners to communicate requirements in terms that they understand instead of the often difficult to understand material and construction standards. The process has been tested 14 times in 1994/95 on the procurement of roofing systems, janitorial services, and landscaping services.
