About the Centre
The Centre for Comparative Construction Research (CCCR) is focused on creating new insight into the performance of the built environment, through an interdisciplinary evidence-based process of:
- translating sustainable design into superior urban infrastructure,
- transforming intelligent assembly into safer and more productive construction practices, and
- transcending benefits realisation into successful financial, social, ethical and environmental outcomes.
Our vision is to be a respected and independent source of research concerning the contribution that the built environment makes to our collective prosperity. Our impact can be assessed in terms of collaborative industry links and funding support. Bond University is, unsurprisingly, a signatory to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG1-17).
The strength of CCCR lies in its interdisciplinary collaboration combining, but not limited to, architecture, construction and urban planning expertise. Buildings and other urban infrastructure have become complicated and expensive assets that reflect a mix of financial, social, ethical and environmental characteristics. Our research is cognisant of expected trends in future practice – climate change, automation and globalisation. The nexus of our research interests is achieving progressive built environment infrastructure.
