Canadian Construction Innovations (CCI), an institute with a mission to instill a new culture for research and innovation in the Canadian construction industry, has launched a Clearinghouse for Construction Innovation in Canada portal.
“The purpose of the clearinghouse portal is to provide the industry with new innovative solutions ready for use and implementation in the construction marketplace,” explains CCI Board Chair John Bockstael.
“It is also to advise the industry of what is coming – tools and developments yet to be realized in the industry.”
CCI President Pierre Boucher explains the portal will serve as a database of who is who in construction research and innovation. A full list of industry researcher and resources will soon be added.
The portal will also serve as a hub for industry stakeholders to discuss concerns or issues of common interest that require new innovative solutions.
CCI expects that in the very short term the portal will be packed with material and references that will create an even bigger demand for information.
CCI CCInnovations was established to provide the necessary framework to enhance industry-wide collaboration for innovation in the construction industry with the aim to increase competitiveness, productivity and financial performance.
