2007 (English)In: Proceedings of 4th Nordic Conference on Construction Economics and Organisation: Development Processes in Construction Management / [ed] Brian Atkin; Jan Borgbrant, Luleå: Luleå tekniska universitet, 2007, 307-319 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The results from a questionnaire survey of risk management in the different phases of a construction project are presented. The participants of the study were clients, contractors and consultants working in Sweden. We analysed the involvement of these actors in the project phases, their roles in the risk management process in particular and their influence on risk management. We show that the planning and production phases of a construction project are the most important for risk management, wherein risk identification, assessment and response take place. Moreover, collaboration in terms of risk management between the actors is most intensive in these phases. Contractors participate more actively in the risk management process in comparison with other actors and have the largest influence on project risk management. Despite the recognised importance of the early phases in the project, our study shows a very low degree of risk management activity in the programme phase.
