A Longitudinal View of Adopting Project Alliancing: Case Finland

Abstract

Purpose – The paper aims to describe the evolution and use of project alliancing in Finland: how the model was discovered, and then, little by little, became an established practice.
Design/Methodology/Approach – The paper is based on a long-term observation of the construction sector activities, involvement in their development and a review of related research and practice documents.
Findings – The paper illustrates how a major change may be laborious. It also reveals that the application of project alliancing seems to have been successful so far, but there are still threats on the horizon.
Research Limitations/Implications – The overview ignores many meaningful details and does not include a critical review of the positive experiences reported by the industry. There certainly is need for related research.
Practical Implications – The study offers a point of reference for evaluation of the smoothness of the progress of industry wide changes.
Originality/Value – This paper seems to be the first one providing a more comprehensive picture of the progress and use of alliancing in Finland, thus supplementing existing view- and project-specific examinations.
