The Building 4.0 Co-operative Research Centre is a collaboration between Monash, Lendlease, the University of Melbourne, Donovan Group, BlueScope, Sumitomo Forestry, CSR and 23 other research and industry partners. Construction and property have a major impact on the economy, environment and society. With the world’s urban areas increasing by 200,000 people per day, access to housing is critical. Importantly 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions are attributable to buildings.
Through deep collaboration and new technologies of the 4th industrial age, the Building 4.0 CRC aims to develop an internationally competitive, dynamic and thriving Australian advanced manufacturing sector, delivering better buildings at lower cost and the human capacity to lead the future industry.
