Moves to improve construction industry partnerships appear to be paying off, according to the initial findings of pilot projects.

Customer satisfaction on the 400 projects set up to demonstrate the "Rethinking Construction" principles is at 90 per cent, compared with the industry average of 78 per cent.

The scheme also helped 12 per cent more projects be delivered to budget.

"Rethinking Construction" is backed by the Department of Trade and Industry and promotes the use of partnering in supply chains to deliver projects quicker, cheaper and more safely.

The DTI's key performance indicators for the entire construction industry showed general year-on-year improvement across the board, although 2 per cent fewer projects were completed on time than last year.
