Abstract: Partnering is a new type of collaboration which is becoming more pressing in the Swedish construction industry. It is a new method between clients, contractor and subcontractor to establish a cooperation for the benefit of all parties. Partnering is based on trust towards each other where both the benefits and risks are evenly divided between the different parties. The construction industry has generally been very fixed that companies should only benefit themselves, this is often by someone else's loss. The trust among businesses has been generally low and to cooperatively work together towards a common goal has not been viable. The hope is that partnering will lead to a more transparent construction industry where efficiency and quality of the work performed is improved. Knowledge about partnering with subcontractors working with interior finishes are generally low or non-existent. In discussion with Ivar Celander AB, we have been asked to analyze how the industry views partnering, and why the knowledge of the collaboration form is insufficient. The focus will primarily be finance and procurement though these subjects are areas of interest to our client. This report has been developed by analyzing the theories that are available in the field and to combine this with the industry's views on the form of cooperation with subcontractors. The information available in the report should form the basis for aiding o to analyze how to work with partnering in future projects. The review made regarding partnering collaboration is that it is a method of work that can lead to a more sustainable market for subcontractors. This through a more consistent profitability, increased input in the projects and improved communication between the various parties. We hope that the information that can be found in the report provides a basis for how Ivar Celander. In the future will work and be in the forefront in projects where partnering is used.
