Reducing housebuilding costs
A critical analysis of the costs of construction
Second Vice President, SCSI
How can the industry reduce the cost of construction?
According to a recent ESRI report, house prices are as high as they can go and the recent modest decline in Dublin house prices demonstrates that the capital has reached the peak of what the market can bear. So, in order to address our housing deficit, the cost of construction needs to come down. How can it be done?

People, bricks and mortar: Improving construction productivity
AFTERNOON KEYNOTE ADDRESS:
Modern Methods of Construction (MMC): Be part of the change
Construction is one of the last sectors in the economy where innovation hasn’t fully taken hold. We’re still building the same way we have been for over 100 years. But, just as we’ve seen technology creep into manufacturing with computer-aided design, robotics and the internet of things, all of these approaches are starting to loom large in construction. How can you take advantage of these emerging technologies?
