Organization profile

Profile Information

The Centre for Comparative Construction Research (CCCR) is focused on creating new insight into the performance of the built environment, and in particular contributing to SDG11, 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 economic, social, political 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 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 economic, social, political 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 sustainable cities and communities using conceptual frameworks such as Correlator.
