Introduction

MALTA

CHAMBER

OF

Strategy

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

Established

in

the

early

stages

of

year

2021,

the

Malta

Chamber

of

Construction

Management (MCCM) with its main objective that to actively contribute towards the upscaling including the modernisation of the local construction industry. The concept towards the setting up of this institution is based on the fact that the Construction

Project

Manager’s

role

and

function

is

considered

pivotal

to

such

improvements and acknowledging this function including the value adding aspects such a function brings with it can only contribute towards improved changes within the whole spectrum of the construction industry. MCCM is providing an adequate and professional platform that shall represent and support

the

local

construction

manager

and

will

explore

areas

of

collaborative

partnership between MCCM and The Chartered Institute of Building. Members to the MCCM are the most knowledgeable and experienced on what the local construction industry really requires and so the benefits of the overall knowledge and experience gained by other foreign institutions will be translated and reflected in the local built environment. The close collaboration with foreign institutions is essential. Our aim is to build good working relationships, benefit from lessons learnt and recommend and support towards the improvements with practises and processes applied at local level. MCCM is therefore, launching its strategy ‘Malta Chamber of Construction Management Strategy

for

2021-2023’

providing

a

road

map

that

outline

the

initiatives

that

the

chamber will be focusing on along a time line that shall serve as the foundations for the longer term.

Professionalism, Innovation and Quality in Construction Management

MALTA

CHAMBER

OF

CONSTRUCTION

Strategy

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

The Chamber believes that primarily, unless there is professionalism applied

in

every

level

of

construction

management

the

success

factor of any reform including new laws and regulations shall be limited. Professionalism can only be achieved through continuous training and development and the acceptance that things can be done better. Highly

trained,

qualified,

and

experienced

construction

managers

can be as innovative as any other professional involved within the local construction industry. Innovation is derived among other things, through the experience gained along the years and the continuous development

of

new

methods

of

work,

new

materials

and

new

software. Raising the bar is a prime priority to the Construction Manager and the avoidance of mediocrity and complacency is to prevail. Quality Management is related to the high standards our profession is to be linked with, and that is expected to transmit to the rest of the project team, from designers to the contractor, and related stakeholders.

Mission Statement

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

Any respected institution must have a clear mission about the purpose of its existence, regardless its size and number of its members. The complete benefits of the collective knowledge are difficult to be achieved if the institution lacks a mission and clear goals. Our mission relates to both the management side of matters and the promotion of construction related technological innovation processes and practices. We are committed to explore different methods and processes of building. MCCM

shall

ensure

that

its

members

hold

the

highest

academic

levels.

Additionally,

it

shall

collaborate

with

the

educational institutions and assist in the development of future managers, architects, engineers and any other profession that might contribute towards the modernisation of the industry. The promotion of integrity and ethics is engraved in the soul of the Malta Chamber of Construction Management. Our members must be responsible not simply for programmes of work or project budgets but of equal importance for the lives and wellbeing of other human beings. To be able to achieve the aforementioned aims, our integrity must be unquestionable at all times. The Chamber must be one of the main drivers in the change in culture that the industry is anticipated to transform itself in the coming years. MCCM shall

raise the awareness in explaining the benefits of professionalism by all the participants and

at all stages of a project life cycle, from its `inception` to the execution and post execution life cycle.

Collaboration

CHAMBER

OF

CONSTRUCTION

Strategy

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

An essential prerogative in any development, is the full and total collaboration among all the affected parties. When a project or development is analysed to identify the real participants, it becomes evident that in a way or another, everyone qualifies as a participant not only those living in the vicinity of the development. The degree of participation might vary. Yet a professional is always required to manage and organize successfully all the participants. This has to be a professional who is trained and experienced to handle situations which at times might be difficult ones. The leadership, management and interpersonal skills of this professional are of crucial importance.

14.

To assist other professionals that to date are not organized in some sort of association, in forming their representative body. This ensures that all key players will have a body which represents them in an autonomous way. .

Education and Development

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

Education and Development are the two main pillars on which this chamber is built upon. The minimum academic requirements expected from the members of the chamber are far from points of arrival but are just the starting points of a long journey towards continuous development. Every member is expected to continuously enhance his/her academic knowledge as well as to gain and share new experiences in an ever-changing industry. The chamber shall be working closely with local and foreign academic institutions to ensure that there are an array of both main stream and specialised courses available for its members. The younger generation should regard MCCM as the institution that can guide them towards achieving their goals when entering the management sector of the construction industry.

18.


Education and development MALTA

provide

as

much

as

Short Term Strategy Every

project

has

a

short

term

and

a

long-term

strategy

and

this

is

not

different to MCCM. As the institution that is representing the construction managers, it is essential to have the short term goals and the eventual longer term goals. Although MCCM is still in its infancy, the short term goals are as important as long-term goals. It is in this way that our existence and formation can be judged and justified. MCCM shall therefore focus its strategies and the benefits derived from these strategies, in two directions. The benefit for its members and the benefit for the common good. The latter might not be understood immediately especially by those who will benefit the most of it. However, this message will be delivered through a well addressed information

campaign

and

the

relevance

of

MCCM

will

gain

even

more

ground.

Long Term Strategy

CHAMBER

Strategy

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

Following the laying of the foundations of the chamber, the early benefits the formation of this foundation will start to be seen. Next will be the long-term strategy to kick in. The long-term strategy will be working in tandem with the short term one. Certain goals and targets of the short-term strategy would have been met and achieved already, thus being the springboard for the long-term ones.

25.


MALTA

CHAMBER

OF

Strategy

MANAGEMENT

2021-2023

The chamber will ensure to know how to exploit the early achievements obtained during the short term strategy, to the benefit of its members and of the public. It will also make them a catalyst for a change in culture and mentality.

Obtaining the legal recognition will provide the Construction Project Manager with a stronger voice in all aspects that relate to the construction industry.

Obtaining

the

dual

membership

with

other

foreign

institutions,

thus

recognition, would be the start of a collaboration that will open doors to

international opportunities,

not only for international job opportunities but also to enhance the knowledge and experiences for its members by working experiences in other foreign countries.

The expansion of BIM technology within the local market. It is common knowledge that to date, this technology is not exploited enough. We will be giving special attention to this subject through our Education and Development Division in order to explain the benefits of adopting this technology, especially for medium to large projects. A good relationship with foreign institutions is essential for this to happen.

The manager through the MCCM, is to be invited and regarded as a permanent fixture on boards and fora set up both by the public and the private sectors, aiming to address issues related to the industry.
