Why Do Hospital Projects Fail?

Click here to view Gerry’s webinar via the Healthcare Estates website.

Healthcare construction projects are complex, use “state of the art” designs, involve multiple stakeholders and contracting parties. In these circumstances, expectations are often misaligned which results in defect and performance issues. In other words, notwithstanding the best of intentions, disputes arise.

Resolving disputes on these capital projects requires a breadth of expert forensic analysis to navigate the intricate web of many underlying issues.

Recent research (CRUX Insight 2019) draws on an unprecedented bank of knowledge to provide valuable insights into the most common causes of claims and disputes, resulting in delays and cost overruns, on major capital projects across multiple sectors around the world.

The presentation draws on the 2019 CRUX data and reviews the more extensive Crux 2020 research data into over 1100+ projects across multiple sectors including 51 healthcare facilities from 8 different countries. This research confirms there are fundamental issues which are within the control of the various project stakeholders. Also, we can see from the research that these issues are repeating themselves year on year which means that lessons are not being learned in the buildings sector.

If the industry is to break this cycle of repetitive disruption, delay and over-blown costs, employers and contractors need to understand, prepare for and manage the complexity of their projects.

This webinar delivered on behalf of the Healthcare Estates Conference considers the evidence from CRUX Insight research of 29 healthcare projects from around the world and identifies common issues resulting in a claim or dispute. How various project stakeholders can mitigate the number of claims arising is discussed and considered, and which would place all parties in a better position to settle any claims which evolve into disputes.
