A report is a written document that provides information. In the construction industry, reports are typically formal documents that provide information about key events, project stages or processes to a client, local authority, purchaser and so on. They can also provide more general information about the state of something, ranging from individual components to the entire construction industry or the wider economy.
Ideally, reports should be concise, written in easy-to-understand language, should be easy to navigate, should contain only information that is necessary, and should not duplicate information that can be found elsewhere.
