Welcome to the I-CENTROID2021

BACKGROUND. Globally, the construction industry is facing many challenges of providing values to be added in the demanding building and infrastructure provision for all societies..  Construction industry is part of the economy which plans, finances, designs, constructs, operates and eventually, demolishes buildings and works and disposes of the debris (Ofori, 2016). Construction industry development is a deliberate and managed process to improve the capacity and effectiveness of the construction industry to meet the national economic demand for building and civil engineering products, and to support sustained national economic and social development objectives (CIB TG29, 1998). Therefore, there is a need of cross-discipline and cross-stakeholders in the industry to address strategic efforts to create value added construction.

THE OBJECTIVE. The construction industry must provide a lot of values to be added such as technology value, economic value, financial value, environmental value, institutional value, political value, social value and management value for current and future built environment.  This international seminar blended with symposium is to disseminate research findings, project case studies and lessons learnt while providing a new progressive consolidated thought among scholars, researchers, practitioners, industry players and policy makers to propose theories and methodologies and strategic practices for transforming construction by all industry players for more value-added building and infrastructure development.

Output. This conference will produce (1) a Scopus indexed proceeding (AIP Conference proceeding), a collection of papers presented at the conference; (2) a position paper to policy makers and industry players for further consideration in the transforming construction industry.
