Blurb/Shorttext:
The construction industry needs to practice its own ethics management to incorporate the project based nature and various stakeholders. This book provides a basis of ethics training and ethical decision making for domestic and multi-cultural construction environments. A framework of ethics training for construction has been developed, comprising both ethical components and cultural components. A framework of ethical decision making has been developed, based on the stakeholder model and the moral development model for construction. The validity of the two frameworks have been tested and proved through questionnaire surveys and SPSS analysis among UK contractors/ designers, Korea contractors/ designers and interviews with ethicians and construction engineers having wide experiences in UK and Korea. The findings identify the causality between cultural differences and ethical differences, the need of cultural interpretation, the significant role of nationality and the importance of systematic ethical decision making. Aristotle’s syllogism has been applied to theoretically justify the process and outcomes of the surveys and interviews.
