Description

The University of Newcastle is proud to present its new professors through a dynamic public lecture series, 'New Professors Talk'. This series introduces you to the new people in our community and shares the knowledge and expertise of these leading commentators and thinkers.

Join us to welcome Professor Peter Davis when he presents De-construction management: How relationships can make the difference in the building game.

The global construction industry can be an adversarial world. Accountability, probity and ultimately the financial bottom line drive many decisions in a commercial building process.

What if the industry gave more weight to relationships and value for money? Could relationship-driven decisions in construction management deliver a better outcome for everyone involved?

Professor Peter Davis is a recognised authority on the role of relationship development and maintenance in procurement for construction and engineering projects. He is UON's Chair of Construction Management, a newly created position jointly funded by two of Australia's leading construction companies Lend Lease and John Holland. Peter worked almost two decades in the private construction sector before joining academia and was most recently Head of the School of Built Environment at Curtin University.

Join us to welcome Professor Peter Davis. 

Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
