Priority Themes


The CIB Board approved a draft scoping paper for the new theme “Integrated Design and Delivery Solutions” (IDDS) in its meeting in April 2008. This new theme will complement and unite the three existing themes (Sustainable Construction, Clients and Users, and Revaluing Construction), strengthen the other themes’ link to the CIB Commissions, and be a strategic tool for the objective of creating a common focus for the disparate areas of research in CIB.
