Todays international business environment is becoming more competitive each day. The property and construction industry, with its highly fragmented project activities, and increasingly demanding clients is no exception. Clients Driving Construction Innovation: Moving Ideas into Practice provides a forum for world-leading industry practitioners and researchers creating the edge in this highly competitive environment to share the results of their research and innovation.

Edited by Kerry Brown, Keith Hampson and Peter Brandon, this is the second book in a series focusing on the role of clients in the innovation process throughout the construction industry. This series of books is an important outcome of the CIB Task Group 58 Clients and Construction Innovation. The book builds upon key frameworks, concepts and case studies presented in the earlier volume Clients Driving Construction Innovation: Mapping the Terrain.

Moving Ideas into Practice brings together research on clients, designers, constructors and facility managers to focus on cutting-edge research in constructed facilities. It showcases technologies and practices developed by leading practitioners and researchers globally and presents advanced applications of applied research for improving industry practice.
