The Subcommittee on Construction and Building of the
President's National Science and Technology Council and
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers sponsored the
Construction Industry Collaborations Workshop in April
1996 as a critical first step in identifying ways to
improve collaborative mechanisms between the public and
private sectors. The Workshop was attended by over 120
key construction industry, government, and academic
research managers who spent one and a half days
developing strategies to improve and foster new
partnerships among industry, academia, and the Federal
government. This report provides a summary and the
results of the Workshop, and is intended to encourage
involvement of organizations not in attendance as well
as to maintain the involvement of Workshop participants
in furthering collaborative efforts.
