Driving new forms of production and reshaping how major built environment projects are managed.
Mass production offers time and cost savings and the potential to improve quality control. Customisation has the potential to provide greater client satisfaction and responds well to the unique conditions of individual building locations. The mass customisation of construction seeks to navigate the tensions between production efficiency and client needs with a focus on the use of more modularised production, flexible processing, and greater integration along the supply chain.
The key researchers include:
- Professor Perry Forsythe – construction productivity and modern methods of timber construction
- Dr Alireza Ahmadian Fard Fini – supply chain management and construction program optimisation
- Professor Goran Runeson – sustainability and construction industry economics
- Peter Livesey – integrated project management in practice
Large infrastructure projects warrant special attention and demand a broad range of expertise covering governance, leadership, innovation, delivery models, and risk management. CiRi has a strong interdisciplinary engagement with global research leaders in the management of large, complex infrastructure projects. Through the UTS School of Built Environment we offer a unique portfolio of executive level programs for the effective procurement and management of complex infrastructure projects.
Our most notable researchers in this space include:
- Professor Shankar Sankaran – systems thinking applied to project leadership and governance issues
- Professor Catherine Killen – strategic and project portfolio management
- Dr Yongjian Ke – procurement and delivery of large urban infrastructure
- Dr Gerard De Valence – structure and economic performance of the construction industry
- Dr Leila Moslemi Naeni – data analytics and performance evaluation of complex projects under uncertainty
