Prof. Dawood is currently the director of Technology Future Institute (TFI) and director and creator of the Centre for Construction Innovation & Research (CCIR) at Teesside University, UK. He has spent many years as an academic, practitioner and a researcher within the field of project and construction management and the application of IT/VR in the construction process.

This has ranged across a number of research topics including sustainability, ICT for energy efficient buildings, Information Technologies and Systems (nD, VR, Integrated databases), planning and management of off-site production, risk management and intelligent decision support systems. This has resulted in over 200 published papers in refereed international journals and conferences, research grants from European Union FP7, British Council, Industry, Engineering Academy, EPSRC, DTI UK Department Trade and Industry, construction industry companies and knowledge Transfer Partnership, totalling about £4,500,000 in cash.

Prof. Dawood has been invited for key note presentations around the world and he is the creator of CONVR (Construction Application of VR) conference series. He is a major contributor to BIM implementation strategies in the UK. Prof. Dawood’s research projects are multi-disciplinary in nature and complementary knowledge and expertise within my research centre, national and international research institutions and collaboration with the UK and EU construction industry has led to successful research bids and exciting research projects.
