CONSTRUCTION BEST practice body Movement for Innovation faces collapse in two years because it has so far failed to win enough backing from construction companies.
M4i will only survive if the Government extends funding beyond 2002, the date when it was expected to be self funding, said M4i board member John Wright.
Since it was formed 18 months ago, M4i has received £800,000 from the DETR. Wright fears that vital publicity and information sharing activities will be lost if funding dries up.
M4i hopes that if Government support is withdrawn it could raise money from the new Regional Development Agencies.
'The RDAs have real money and that is going to be directed towards those organisations able to demonstrate modern management practices, ' said Nicholson.
