About this event

The Institution of Civil Engineers, in conjunction with Infrastructure Client Group and Infrastructure UK, is holding the launch of Alliancing Code of Practice as part of its efforts to improve infrastructure delivery.

Both the Government Construction Strategy and the IUK Cost Review have identified that efficiency savings could be delivered through reforming procurement practices and effecting behavioural and culture change.

The wider adoption of collaborative approaches and integrated team working has been supported by the Government and industry. Alliancing is one form of collaborative working that has been adopted successfully in the UK and other countries. The Alliancing Best Practice in Infrastructure Delivery (2014) and now this Alliancing in Infrastructure Delivery Code of Practice are products of the government working collaboratively with industry and academia through the Infrastructure Client Group.

Good alliances can unlock enhanced value from investment in our infrastructure projected and programme.

This Code of Practice enables decision makers to make an informed choice of whether to alliance and if so how to create, deliver and sustain a successful alliance that will deliver benefits to clients suppliers and end users of assets.
