              'Rethinking Construction' head calls on industry
                      to push forward agenda for change

PremiSys Technologies plc (AIM:PSS) 'PremiSys' today announces that Sir John
Egan, chairman of the influential 'Rethinking Construction' report, has
agreed to become chairman of Asite, the construction industry Internet
portal and subsidiary of PremiSys.

This is the first such position that he has accepted within the construction
sector since he chaired the government's Construction Taskforce and
published his challenging recommendations for industry change in 1998.

Sir John Egan said:  'I am delighted to be joining Asite; it's a business
that will really drive industry change.  Asite represents a mechanism by
which the recommendations of the Construction Taskforce can actually be
delivered: eliminating waste, integrating the supply chain and standardising
best practice.  We are inviting 300 leading industry figures to a summit on
6 June to share with us our agenda for change.  We want to demonstrate how
all parts of the construction supply chain can be involved in improving the
industry's processes - and that includes all the materials manufacturers and
distributors, many of whom have been left out of these dialogues in the

Peter Rogers, director of Asite said: 'Sir John Egan's decision to join
Asite demonstrates the potential power of online collaboration within the
construction industry.  Asite is now supported by some of the biggest names
in our business, all with a shared commitment to greater competitiveness and
efficiency, and by some of the world's leading technology partners.  Like
Sir John Egan, they all clearly endorse our driving objective: to get
buildings right, and right first time.'
