Virtual Futures for Design, Construction and Procurement

"For the knowledgeable reader in ICT research it is a must to confirm where technology is now and moreover to see where it is going in the future." Building Engineer

Bill Bygrave is the Director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at Babson College, where he also teaches Free Enterprise. He has also been a successful entrepreneur himself: he founded a high-tech company that was funded with venture capital; he managed a division of another high-tech company that was listed on the NYSE; he co-founded a pharmaceutical database company; and he was a member of the investment committee of a venture capital firm. He spent the 1992-1993 academic year at INSEAD where he introduced an MBA course in Entrepreneurial Finance and led a pan-European team from eight nations that studied entrepreneurs' attitudes toward realizing value and harvesting their companies. One of the outcomes of that research was the initiative that led to the founding of EASDAQ (the European equivalent of NASDAQ). In 1997, he and Michael Hay at the London Business School started the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), which examines the entrepreneurial competitiveness of nations. Bygrave was the 1997 winner of the Ernst Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in the supporter category for New England, and one of the three finalists in this category nationwide.

This book brings together some of the best practitioners and thinkers from around the world to discuss the likely future of information and communication technologies for the construction industry.

It addresses a range of innovative developments, state of the art applications, research work and theoretical arguments with regard to the use of virtual technologies in design, construction and procurement. From a future oriented perspective, the book presents what can be expected from the next generation of these technologies.
