Project-based working in construction poses significant challenges for the development of appropriate strategies and practices for the capture and diffusion of knowledge and learning. Drawing upon research conducted in the UK into knowledge management for project-based learning across a range of industrial sectors, this paper presents a case study of knowledge management practices within a construction company. It examines the key enablers and barriers to tile effective capture and diffusion of knowledge and sets the discussion of the construction case against the findings from the research as a whole. The analysis stresses the importance of social factors in understanding and, ultimately, enhancing knowledge management capabilities in the construction sector.
