The UK Construction Industry relies substantially on subcontracting within its construction projects with around 80%-90% of its work being carried out by subcontractors, (Omotayo et al, 2022). However, subcontractors are smaller in both size and revenue which on reflection indicates that they would suffer with more constraints, (Dainty et al, 2001). Over subsequent decades numerous amounts of literature have focused on the downsides of this collaborative approach, which have identified common problems including low-level opportunities to innovate and align new ways of working, (Loosemore and Lim, 2021), which has acknowledged that there is a gap in how subcontractors can partake in the upcoming focus on technological adoptions in the project lifecycle, (Khahro et al, 2021).
