Pressures from the growing world population and global economy have placed unprecedented demands on the built environment. The construction industry must provide socially and environmentally responsive solutions that address the entire life cycle of buildings and infrastructure in a multi-disciplinary context. To help meet these challenges, the VISICO center develops visualization and simulation (V&S) systems that flexibly support decision making in complex and rapidly changing environments. The VISICO center aims to be a driving force behind the development and dissemination of novel research and applied design solutions for the construction industry from early ideation to implementation and maintenance. As an applied research center, VISICO’s research and technologies can be found both in high-ranking scientific journals as well as applied in projects internationally.
The VISICO center is based in the Department of Construction Management and Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering Technology.
