Abstract: Why has the construction industry been virtually the only major business sector to experience productivity decline over several decades? The authors suggest that cultural, technological and supply chain barriers endemic to the AECOO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owner, Operations) sector contribute to inefficiency and waste. As a result facility managers continue to struggle with cost effective facility life-cycle management. These barriers, however, are in the process of being broken down by 1.) worldwide changes in the economic and environmental landscapes, 2.) the advent of disruptive technologies – specifically BIM and Cloud Computing, and 3.) the associated application and integration of transparent and collaborative project delivery methods.
