A fundamental challenge in the construction industry is bridging the gap between design, realization, operate & maintain and deconstruction & reuse phases. The chair 'Construction Process Integration & ICT' addresses this challenge and focuses on more integrated decision making and more integrated ways of working and cooperating along these phases. It addresses the opportunities of increasingly advanced digital and information management solutions to support and boost more integrated practices (e.g., modular concepts, integrated project delivery, supply chain management).
The main questions that drive my research lie in the organizational and change management aspects of construction processes, such as ‘What are the organizational conditions for the successful use of digital technologies in construction?’, ‘What are the organizational effects of digital technologies?’, and ‘How can these changes be implemented successfully?’.
The development and application of advanced digital solutions (like digital twins, digital product platforms and artificial intelligence) is an important spearhead of the TNO roadmap ‘Buildings & Infrastructures’.
