  Research Centre for Construction and Real Estate Economics (RCCREE)

The research work and consultancy services of the Department of Building and Real Estate (BRE), Faculty of Construction and Enviroment, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University are mainly organized through the Research Centre for Construction and Real Estate Economics (RCCREE) and the Research Centre for Construction Innovation. Since 2000, RCCREE has been supporting the advancement of the construction and real estate industries in Hong Kong and the China Mainland. Our expertise includes land and construction economics, construction safety, real estate economics and housing. We have more than 30 members, who are academics from BRE as well as local and overseas universities, and continuously explore our knowledge by undertaking cutting-edge and multi-disciplinary research at local and international levels. Moreover, surveyors, lawyers, architects, engineers, town planners and builders from industries are active participants of RCCREE who serve to bridge our research outputs and industrial needs

Organized by RCCREE, 20th AsiaConstruct Conference was a great success in November 2014



  Research Centre for Construction Innovation (RCCI)
  The construction industry is dominant among Hong Kong industries, contributing about 23.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Therefore, even a small improvement in this industry will significantly benefit the economy of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). The Research Centre for Construction
Innovation (RCCI) is committed to the research and development in construction innovation. It is operating within the Department of Building and Real Estate (BRE) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU). RCCI is enthusiastically supported (in cash and kind) by the HKSAR Government, industry, and other sources.
BRE of HK PolyU has developed research programmes and consultancy capacities in construction innovation. RCCI has recently been established to create and apply new knowledge and advanced understanding of construction innovation, including information technology (IT) systems to provide new solutions that improve construction processes. The mission of RCCI is to act as a focal point for addressing the construction industry’s research and consultancy needs as well as providing specialists who will bring about a step change in the industry practice. We take pride in our very close links with industry and welcome enquiries from all areas of the construction and related industry sectors. The members of RCCI are made up of academics and researchers with practical experience in construction
industry. Recently, RCCI has applied the Virtual Prototyping Technology to construction process simulation and optimization. Other leading research areas include: Contractual & Regulatory Innovations, Value Management in Construction, and Project Management. The members of RCCI have developed a
strong research profile to lead construction innovation...more...


  Smart Construction Laboratory
  The Smart Construction Laboratory ( SCLab ) , previously called Construction Virtual Prototyping Laboratory (CVP Lab) was founded in 2004. With external funding of approximately HK$ 2.5 millions per years (industrial donations, public grants including GRF, ITF, PPR, CIC, NSFC, etc.). Our Lab has been providing industrial services covering Building Information Modeling (BIM), process simulation solutions, and professional training to the construction industry. Construction Virtual Prototyping (CVP) provides a capacity to “construct in the computer”. It provides a modeling and simulation environment so powerful that the production, fabrication and assembly of construction components, including the associated operational processes, can be simulated in the computer. VP takes into account all of variables in the project delivery process from feasibility analysis to maintenance management. The primary objective is to evaluate the feasibility of construction processes with a view to minimize the time and resource use...more
