Technology fusion is a new way of improving efficiency and effectiveness of construction technology research and development. Technology fusion indicates an interdisciplinary approach of combining different technology areas. To succeed in developing technology fusion-based construction research plans, two major approaches are adopted in this study: technology push investigation and market needs identification. Technology push investigation is to understand what types of technology are pushing the industry for improved business practices. Market needs are identified based on expert panel discussion, questionnaire-based survey, and committee reviews, in order to extract a range of technologies that are needed in the present construction industry. Through this process, 124 technology fusion-based research program candidates, which were first discovered from technology push and market demands investigation, were refined and reduced into 36 research programs. This paper presents the systematic methodology for developing the technology fusion-based research programs.
