Construction Management

One of the UK’s longest established research groups specialising in delivering innovative solutions that enhance the construction, operation and maintenance of complex buildings and infrastructure.


Our research includes a longitudinal approach to the digital transformation of the construction industry, building sustainability and Building Information Modelling (BIM), performance optimisation, data optimisation, circular economy, resource efficiency, construction waste management and minimisation, and well-being of people. Building on longstanding relationships with industry partners, we have developed research projects that deliver high impact in both academia and industry.

The Construction Management Research Group’s activities fall under three main themes.



Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Building Design

We collaborated with the Royal Academy of Engineering to provide the best practice in teaching and research for a more sustainable built environment.
