Purpose of this paper: This study explore Performance Measurement applications within construction research and development (R&D) to develop a structured approach to measure the performance of collaborative construction R&D projects during its lifecycle from initiation, conceptualising, development and launch stages and at the project management. Design/methodology/approach: During the exploratory phase of the study, semi-structured interviews and a questionnaire survey were carried out to develop the performance measurement system (PMS). During the explanatory phase, the developed PMS was refined with a series of semi-structured interviews. The data was gathered from principal investigators, researchers and industrial partners involved in collaborative construction R&D work. Findings: Main finding is the developed PMS to measure the performance of construction R&D that consists of critical success factors, performance indicators and performance measures during the lifecycle of a R&D project. Practical implications: The PMS developed through the study provides critical success factors, performance indicators and measures that need to be considered during the construction R&D projects to measure the performance. Thus, through the implementation of the PMS, this study contributes to practice by assisting the performance improvement within construction R&D projects. What is original / value of paper?: The developed PMS to measure the performance of construction R&D project will provide value for those who are engaged in R&D work (Principle investigators, researcher and industrial partners) to ensure the success of their projects.
