Our research

Research areas

We undertake ground-breaking research in project and construction management. Our industry partners work with us to advance project management practices as a way to improve the predictability, efficiency and effectiveness of projects. As a result of this collaboration, users of the centre’s research outcomes are documenting savings on their capital projects.
