According to the 2021 Industry Report on Digitalisation of Design and Construction of Class 2 Buildings in New South Wales, close to 40% of the interviewed firms, on average, invest less than 1% of their annual turnover on R&D activities.
In this edition of the Blaze Inc. Connected Construction Podcast Series, we discussed "Why We Need More R&D in the Building Construction Industry". The guest for this episode is Dr Zulfikar Adamu - an Associate Professor of Strategic IT in Construction at London Southbank University.
Some of the issues we discussed include:
- Why there is currently a low level of R&D in the built sector.
- How to build a strong R&D culture in a typical AEC Firm.
- Some emerging trends that are worth investing research money on in the built sector.
- How to create a link between Academic and Industry research in the Built Sector.
