Star System Launched

‘Best’ Practice versus ‘Good’ Practice

Since the DBP Website was established in 2004 some of the submissions published as ‘Best’ practice have since become 'Good' practice.

In this instance ‘Good’ practice is defined as offering a standard common sense solution, or a CDM compliant approach to everyday issues encountered in the construction industry.

The ‘Best’ practice categorisation is now redefined as a solution employing innovative thinking or a ground breaking approach worthy of special note.

Therefore to reflect this change items considered as ‘Best’ practice will in future be identified with a adjacent to the subject to differentiate them from submissions that are considered to be ‘Good’ practice.

Consequently any new submission featured on the website could reflect either ‘Good practice’ or ‘Best practice’, as denoted by the notation.
