The Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW) has selected three Skanska case studies promoting exemplary approaches to collaboration in industry, in the latest issue of their annual publication, The Partner.
‘Performance and Outcomes’ is the theme of the issue, which features case studies and insights from ICW Foundation Members, spanning a wide range of sectors.
The three Skanska case studies cover the successful alliancing approach developed by the Wessex Capacity Alliance, how tapping into behaviours has influenced the success of the A14 supply chain team, and how Skanska’s commitment to the Be Better - Together value shapes the way we work.
"These case studies represent the best of our values, showing that our Be Better – Together value is a major factor in Skanska’s long-term success. They demonstrate the tangible benefits we can derive from successful collaboration, resulting in better outcomes for our customers and great infrastructure for their customers," said Thomas Faulkner, executive vice president, Skanska.

Reducing and measuring carbon intensity is a vital part of cutting carbon emissions.
It is just as important as the total emissions produced by an organisation.
Carbon intensity is the amount – in tonnes of CO₂ equivalent gases – emitted for each £1 million of a company’s revenue.
The lower the figure, the better.
It measures carbon efficiency – how much carbon is produced by the activities of the organisation.
As an example, you could have two companies doing exactly the same piece of work – but one has a lower level of carbon emissions from the work than the other.
The one with the lowest intensity is the most carbon efficient.
Skanska UK’s carbon intensity has fallen from 351 in 2010 to 215 in 2018. Our goal is to reduce it to 130 by 2030.
Some types of work, by their nature, produce more carbon than other kinds. So, the mix of work an organisation does can affect its carbon intensity.
By measuring intensity, we can focus those activities that produce the most emissions.
This highlights the need to use a number of different ways to measure the complete emissions picture, such as five-year rolling rates – which smooth out the impact of the economic factors affecting the construction industry.
