About the conference
The built environment is an integral part of our lives: from the houses we live in and the offices and factories we work in, to the roads, railroads and bridge we drive on, and from the waterworks that keep us dry, to the gas, water, electricity and communication systems that comfort our lives. The construction industry is being responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of the built environment and is also playing an important role in the efficiency of other industries and the economy as a whole. As we progress into the 21st Century, the construction industry is facing an increase of the complexity of construction projects in terms of qualities, functions, development processes and technical achievements and consequently its changing perception of interests and values.
In order to cope with this increased complexity, the construction industry is adopting (or developing) new techniques and technologies in the field of management, organisation, collaboration, systems engineering, manufacturing and ICT. These new techniques and methodologies mean that we have to carefully consider not only how to implement appropriate management techniques to address these techniques and methodologies, but also how to develop education systems that address this new reality and prepare graduates to quickly and effectively participate in today's industry.
Building and Construction is an international industry and this Conference provides the opportunity for national and international delegates to examine and discuss the latest methodologies and techniques in both project management and management education.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Global construction
- Sustainability in construction
- Construction project management education
- Information and communication technology in construction
- Trends in construction technology
- Organisation for construction
- Infrastructure renewal
