||Parties collaborating on infrastructure projects in the civil engineering industry have expressed theirneed to use common starting points for information transfer and communication. The VISI projectexamined what type of starting points are required for the design and construction of infrastructure,proposing a framework of agreements that is based on the DEMO organisational theory. Theframework describes the process on the dividing lines of identified roles. The responsibilities ofeach role are determined, including the required communication. The framework was elaborated forthe following fields of application: design, contracting, and testing/acceptance. The result iscurrently being tested in the sector, and the first results of the trial demonstrate that the frameworkoffers effective support for organising the collaboration and specifying the communication structure.
