Construction is a complex and difficult operation with potential risks at every turn. Albeit, there is great personal and professional satisfaction in being part of a major venue building program. Hence, if carefully planned and executed, there is no reason why the process of programming, design, construction, occupancy and maintaining a new or remodelled facility cannot be effective and efficient so that facility planners can enjoy the journey – for them to be able to take great pride and enjoyment out of knowing that they have been part of creating history with their involvement in the development of a facility that will be around for many years to come.
