The use of formalised risk management approaches by UK design consultants in conservation refurbishment projects
Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent and nature of use of formalised risk management tools and techniques by UK design consultants ‐ chartered architects and chartered building surveyors ‐ in conservation refurbishment projects. Design/methodology/approach ‐ Following a review of risk management literature, a detailed questionnaire is prepared and considered by a focus group. Post-revision, nearly 700 postal questionnaires are distributed to chartered architects and chartered building surveyors specialising in conservation work in the UK. The questionnaire contains Likert-scale and closed-end questions. Response data is analysed using SPSS software. Findings ‐ The results highlight the divergent approaches employed by UK chartered architects and chartered building surveyors specialising in conservation refurbishment work, suggesting that a harmonised risk model would be appropriate and should be developed. Originality/value ‐ The results make an important contribution to understanding the dynamics within this under-researched area of professional activity.
