Like the building sector in many other countries the Danish construction sector was criticised heavily in a number of government sponsored reports in the 1990s. The sector was seen to be unresponsive to change and ‘locked-in’ to familiar working practices, and so development was needed. And, like in other countries, the critique was accompanied by government led initiatives aimed at increasing productivity and improving quality. However, a report commissioned by the Danish Building Development Council, painted a much different picture, with an evolving and dynamic construction sector. The results of this research are reported and comparisons made with the less positive reports. From this a number of questions are raised about the scope of reports and the focus of future research into the Danish construction sector.
