Research Themes
Research Summary

Research has focused on aspects of the industrial economics of the construction sector, embracing the structure of the construction industries, the strategies, behaviour and performance of construction firms; and the complex and specific economic institutions of the construction process, specifically contracting and procurement systems.

Current research within the procurement theme focuses on the Private Finance Initiative (Build-Own-Operate-Transfer Contracting). Much of his research has been undertaken with partners from the UK construction sector, some co-ordinated through the UK’s Construction Industry Council, to whom Graham is an economic advisor, and other through KPMG Global Infrastructure.

Current research on contracting systems in UK construction is focused upon the role of trade credit for construction main and specialist contractors, and comparative analysis of the financial structures of the balance sheets of firms in the contract construction industry with those in other sectors of the UK economy.

Teaching Summary

At the Bartlett since 1977, Graham Ive was from 1989 until 2011 responsible for the overall direction of the MSc Construction Economics and Management (CEM) course, and for most economics teaching across the School's growing masters programme of 3 MSc courses, CEM, Project and Enterprise Management (PEM) and Strategic Management of Projects (SMP).

Most recently, Graham's infrastructure project finance research collaboration with KPMG led to identification of a gap in the academic provision of Masters courses focused on infrastructure investment and finance - on the economics of infrastructure investment and on non-traditional sources of infrastructure finance and models of infrastructure ownership and provision. Graham designed academic structure and content, found industry and government sponsors, market researched and obtained UCL approval for a new MSc in Infrastructure Investment & Finance (IIF), which admitted its first cohort of students in September 2013. In 2012 Graham handed over as programme organiser for IIF to Dr Aristeidis Pantelias, who joined UCL with a remit to direct the further development and delivery of this programme.
