Presents a holistic approach to construction project SCM. Specifically, a seamless project supply chain management (SCM) model is proposed that integrates the design and production processes of construction projects. The proposed model was subjected to validation by a sample of industry practitioners and their comments are presented and reflected upon. Direction for future research is provided and such work aims to: explore the legalities of implementing the model; develop an appropriate benchmarking framework; explore the use of quality function development; and probity issues when selecting project team members.
