Construction Productivity R&D Roadmap

The construction productivity research and development (R&D) roadmap is designed to increase productivity in the construction industry. This is achieved by using technology and innovation to build better quality structures in shorter timeframes. 

Key R&D clusters

The roadmap has identified 35 key technologies under the seven R&D clusters for further development. The seven R&D clusters are:

  1. Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA)
  2. Automated equipment and robotics
  3. Info-comm technology
  4. Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC)
  5. 3D printing
  6. Advanced construction materials 
  7. Productive solutions for civil engineering works
