By Will Venters, Mike Cushman and Tony Cornford


This paper proposes a sociology of knowledge approach as a basis for understanding the potential of knowledge management for a complex inter-organisational domain - thec UK construction industry - with a specific aim of increasing the sustainability of the processes and products of the industry. To this end, soft systems methodology is introduced as a method of conceptualising the industry's knowledge environment and moving towards technological interventions which enable a move towards sustainability in construction practice
