State of the nation: sector report (Digital Innovation)

Dr Reyhaneh Shojaei's report sets out the current state of the UK construction industry in relation to the socio-economic inhibitors to the uptake of digital innovation.

Rey Shojaei's comprehensive sector review set the context for the UK construction industry by looking at the megatrends within the industry as a whole, and identified the increasingly obvious slowness of the UK construction industry to adopt digital innovation in a transformative manner.

Setting out the four main barriers to BIM implementation: structure, people, technology and task, the report called for research which adopts a qualitative approach. This will facilitate an understanding of the socio-economic and cultural inhibitors that lay beneath reluctance to adopt digital innovation throughout the UK construction industry.
