Despite its position at the forefront of innovative change in the UK construction industry, its has yet to become mainstream. This paper adopts a multi-level socio-technical transitions (MLS) theoretical framework to review and synthesise relevant literature to conceptualise how an industry-wide uptake of OSM rests on the creation of a dominant platform around which other innovations will coalesce, in order to ‘break through’ and trigger changes in the existing configurations defining the way the construction industry works.
