Project Description

Construction practice is rooted in project-based thinking as organisations utilise temporary teams, to create one-off products, in response to unique and changeable site conditions. In response, product platforms have begun to emerge in construction, but the introduction of broader, platform-based business models promises fundamental and holistic change to traditional construction. Such business models leverage a combination of strategies in terms of product and process that require investigation, definition, critique, and adaptation for their potential use in construction. Project 3 examines construction’s disparate ecosystem to consolidate the broader network of actors through an examination of industry-wide business-level platforms.
