The yawning gap that lies between form and function


Has there ever been an analysis of expediture over time from conception to completion for such iconic structures described above from the UK and abroad? Perhaps a comparison as to where, oh where, money gets poured into in the UK for our major infrastructure. Most people enjoy bashing the UK construction industry, including HM Gov. but what is the foundation for this criticism. Are the figures like for like? How much gets spent in the planning stages in the UK compared to abroad?
