#38 Victorian Government Digital Build – Translating theory into practice

This cross-sector collaboration aims to address the gap between theory and practice to facilitate greater uptake of digitally integrated building and offsite construction in Victoria. Three tranches of research will be used to build Victoria-specific evidence about digital building projects, practices and environments:

1) off-site and modular construction hubs
2) benefits of digital build
3) project applicability decision making framework.

Building on our partners’ expertise and project data, this project will integrate spatial, economic and socio-technical research to align government and industry imperatives for establishing and sustaining a robust, digitally integrated building industry in Victoria.
