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).

Important areas of interest are organizational and change management aspects (e.g., what are organizational conditions for the successful use of ICT in construction, what are organizational effects, and how can these changes be implemented successfully?).
