Abstract

Construction projects are getting bigger and more complex while the average productivity of the industry is not improving enough. It is essential to look at the means available, in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the construction industry. Fusion of traditional construction technology and new technology is an alternative plan for technology innovation. For the successive fusion of different technologies, it is necessary to develop systematic research strategies that consider variable issues such as how to define the area for technology fusion, how to estimate the marketability of new technologies, and how to apply the new technologies. This paper presents a study to identify the demands for innovative future construction technology based on the strategy of technology fusion. Over 157 survey participants were experts from construction companies, academia, government supported research institutes, and government agencies. The survey results show global research trends, technological demands for technology fusion, obstacles to innovative research, and so on.
