Abstract

It is widely agreed that the practice of construction is deficient and requires improvement. However, the construction research community has had little to contribute to a solution, except trialling new approaches from general management scene or advancing technological tools. It is argued that a new research frontier is needed, where integral understanding of operations, construction and computing is created. Through this understanding, real progress can be achieved.
