A great video from the CPI archives, provided by Keith Snook of the BRE (and CPI Committee member).
This clip from a much longer film from the time of the launch of the original CPI documents in 1987 and shows two examples of the consequences of not communicating information effectively through the construction process. Both cases show the correlation between the quality of information delivered to site with the quality of finished work.
“Progress on site was often disrupted by late or inadequate information”
Then and Now
Here’s some comparison shots of the first example in the video (from the Building Research Establishment in Watford) as it stands today, still with the infill detail at the redundant doorway.
