We are one of the largest and most active working commissions of CIB. The scope of W78’s work is broad in terms of the design, construction and occupation and occupancy of constructed facilities, but primarily it relates to the integration and communication of data, information and knowledge in the facility’s life cycle.
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are relevant to all aspects of the workplace and are seen as a major enabler of productivity improvement as well as more sophisticated and integrated design and construction. Against this background the Commission focuses on:
- Development and application of integrated IT throughout the life-cycle of the design, construction and occupancy of buildings and related facilities
- Demonstration of capabilities developed in collaborative research projects on Construction IT
