Abstract: The future is by its very nature uncertain and unknown, and only by discussion and debate regarding how the future may develop can we adequately prepare for what may lie ahead. A collaborative scenario development process was developed with the European Construction Institute (ECI) Industry Futures Task Force. This involved investigating and debating the range of issues and factors that might impact upon the European construction industry in the next couple of decades, which resulted in the development of four future scenarios for the European construction industry and five key characteristics for ECI’s preferred future. From this the ECI identified a set of actions for its member organisations. Amongst these were the formation of two new Task Forces on People and Collaboration - a direct consequence of the work presented here.
