A brief background and recent history of POE in the wider industry was also summarised. The reasons why POE is thought to be a cost effective means of providing useful feedback to improve designs for the benefit of clients was covered.  Also the description of how Skanska made the decision to engage with the process and the description of the methodology adopted.
