This has resulted in an industry that significantly lags others in most performance indicators: value for money, safety, sustainability and quality. Currently, the sector is experiencing the midpoint of the BIM IT wave. The next wave will be centred on Big Data and the Internet-of-Things, says Dr Ioannis Brilakis of the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction.

Evaluating energy use and emissions in the urban environment article by Ruchi Choudhary published in Infrastructure Intelligence

Climate change, air quality and energy security present a triad of challenges to national, regional and local governments, requiring policies to control energy use and its impact.
