Advancement in the construction industry is critical in achieving smart cities and constructing a future built environment. Despite previous and current attempts, advanced technologies are not widely implemented due to the dynamic nature of activities on construction sites.
The advanced construction research cluster engages with freeform, creative, and imaginative concepts while reducing costs on the human, ecological, energy, time and financial aspects of construction.
This is a broad and young area, with options to create impact in the domain of the built environment by bringing innovative products to the market. On the other hand, engaging current knowledge such as visualisation technologies, artificial intelligence/human co-creation, additive manufacturing, and advanced end-user devices into a coherent solution for construction industry issues enables more efficient design, operation and maintenance.
