Prof Sidney Newton, Director, University of Technology Sydney, School of Built Environment Centre for Informatics Research and Innovation, said, “The roundtable represents a unique opportunity to bring international expertise in mass-customisation, lean construction and digital technologies, together with key industry stakeholders to address the pressing social need for better quality, cheaper and more durable housing for the urban poor. The unprecedented demand for low-cost housing in India is driving fundamental change in how the construction industry is structured and managed.”

Methodologies discussed as a part of this roundtable will be useful in enabling us to understand how these demands can be addressed.
