Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Partnering is a collaboration method where the contractor and the client work together, based on a mutual trust towards each other and with a common goal for the project. The method originates from the United States where it was early adapted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It later spread internationally where the United Kingdom and Denmark were early in Europe to see the potential with partnering, to help aid with the issues they were having where construction projects kept running late, going over budget and lacked in quality. By using partnering you can achieve a shorter building time, improved work relationships and enhanced efficiency and cost effectiveness. In Sweden state-owned Swedish Transport Administration commonly use partnering in highway road projects, where Skanska has been involved as the contractor. Skanska wishes to use partnering in wider measure, especially with the municipalities in the Mälardalen region. In order to research the municipalities’ usage of partnering interviews were held with a selected group. These interviews resulted in a conclusion that the usage of partnering was very limited and the focus shifted to research the potential use of partnering in the future. Overall the attitude towards partnering was positive, but due to lack of time and knowledge about the collaboration method they hadn’t used it yet. In order for them to use it in the future they most likely will have to find a project where the advantages of partnering makes it more advantageous than the traditional forms of contract.
