New Research Investigates Australian Construction’s Innovation Credentials


How innovative is the Australian construction industry? There are a lot of conflicting reports so there needs to be a definitive answer and construction professionals will be rewarded for 2 minutes of their time. in partnership with the Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF), invites all business leaders and workers across the Australian construction industry to add their view to an in-depth investigation into the sector’s adoption of new and innovative ways of working, with the launch of a new productivity and innovation research project.

There are so many great construction innovation and technology reports coming from the USA, Europe and Asia, it’s now time to get some real info on the Australian construction industry. We’re aiming for the first time to provide a clear picture of our industry’s innovation credentials and ultimately provide construction professionals, in form of the final report, the tools to benchmark where they or their organisation sit.

As building designs become increasingly sophisticated and compliance requirements more complex, there’s no lack of innovative technologies being adopted across the Australian building sector, from Building Information Modelling (BIM) and project management platforms, to drones, robotics and high-tech safety equipment. Yet we are still getting conflicting reports stating we are either innovation adopters or the worlds technological laggards.

Perhaps the reason for the industry’s inconclusive results is due to the lack of credible information about industry innovation and investment in technology?Whatever the reason, the time has come to get some definitive answers as to where Australia ranks and provide a clear and accurate snap shot of our current innovation and productivity position.

Through a simple two-minute online survey, all Australian construction professionals have the opportunity to provide this realistic snapshot into the current state of play in the industry.

From the survey results and ACIF will produce a beautiful, highly visual report with lots of infographics and data visualisations. It’ll be the first of its kind in Australia.
