The Construction Futures Research Centre (CFRC)

Smart productivity improvements for offsite design, manufacture and construction

CFRC is a research centre based at the University of Wolverhampton and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Our ultimate aim at CFRC is to improve the efficiency of the construction sector.

Decisions made early in the design stage can have significant time and cost impact on manufacture and construction later in the process.

Advanced tools and techniques mean we are able to simulate the entire process right through design, manufacture, installation and operation of built assets.

We aim to develop ground-breaking methodologies for process simulations leading to significant productivity and gains for the region, impacting housing and also major infrastructure projects.
