The construction knowledge gap is the difference between the easy-to-access, practical knowledge that practitioners want, and the sometimes difficult-to-use, difficult-to-find, 'academic' knowledge that the industry creates. You can find out more about the knowledge gap here.

On 9 May 2018, twenty industry representatives met at the offices of BuroHappold in London to discuss the problems posed by the construction knowledge gap and to consider whether there was support for tackling these problems collaboratively. You can read more about the event here.
