Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology


Over the past few months, Laing O'Rourke Professor Ioannis Brilakis, along Dr Kyriakos Kantarakias and Alexander Gillies, have been building a new platform to transform information exchange and management in the construction industry.
