The CRC for Construction Innovation enjoyed success at the Australian Institute of Building Awards on 29 September.
, a world-first technology which diagnoses and provides solutions to under-performing construction projects, won an AIB national professional excellence research and development award.
This innovative software, now being marketed throughout the world, identifies specific areas of poor project health, pinpoints the root causes and suggests remedies.
Project Diagnostics was developed by a Construction Innovation team led by Arup, Queensland University of Technology, CSIRO, John Holland and the Queensland Departments of Public Works and Main Roads.
Receiving a High Commendation in the same category at the AIB awards was DesignCheck
, an advanced computer software tool that provides automated checking of designs against building codes for compliance of designs. The first code implemented is the disabled access code.
DesignCheck was developed by a Construction Innovation team led by CSIRO, University of Sydney and industry participants Woods Bagot and Building Commission Victoria.
Congratulations to both project teams. These projects are part of a range of technologies and managements systems developed by Construction Innovation and its industry, government and research partners.
The awards reflect industry recognition of the outcomes of our collaborative approach.
