Construction is a major contributor to UK GDP (directly 8.5% in 2008, rising to 10% overall when the entire value chain is considered) and a driver of historical GDP growth. The sector employs over 3 million people in a multitude of roles representing 8% of UK employment and a significant proportion of construction employees. The construction industry operates in stages and one of which is the pre-design stage. The pre-design stage is an important phase of the construction process because this is where the client brief is written up and major decisions are made. An effective client briefing process is important to the attainment of client objectives with respect to time, cost and quality for construction projects. Through a critical review of literature. Research shows that despite several research conducted in the area of knowledge management, it has unfortunately, not been matched by parallel empirical research on the processes, challenges and benefits of knowledge capture (KC) in the design briefing process within the construction industry. As a result of this, many projects end up under performing and not matching up to the expected goals and objectives highlighted by the client. This goes on to ascertain that inadequate attention given to the knowledge capturing process during the design briefing can be a major deterrent to the output of a construction project which can in turn lead to highly dissatisfied clients and loss of contract for some organizations. This paper presents the importance and likely barriers associated with knowledge capturing during the client briefing process and the impact poorly run design briefing process has on the output of a construction project.
