In UK construction, relationships between clients and contractors have been characterized by adversarial attitudes, but there is recent evidence of a change to more collaborative forms. It is argued that this will generate more successful projects, but there is only limited research to confirm this. Based on this gap, the research will examine the relation between collaborative working and project performance through building a research model which associates the attributes of collaborative working and key performance indicators. A taxonomy of collaborative working will be created through cluster analysis based on measuring attributes such as trust and commitment. Through this, clients and contractors could identify their current situation and develop or maintain high levels of collaborative working, which may further improve project performance.
