Abstract

The potential for facilitating faster, safer, and more sustainable construction processes through the adoption of smart construction technologies is widely recognized. However, the limited adoption of these technologies in construction projects highlights the significance of identifying the technological needs of major stakeholders and the prioritization of research and development investment. In this study, the quality function deployment technique is employed to extract and prioritize the required technologies (RTs) from various stakeholders, while a thematic literature review is conducted to identify challenges and future research directions. The findings improve the efficiency of resource allocation, allowing policymakers to strategically address pressing issues. This can facilitate collaboration and communication among researchers, stakeholders, and the wider community, fostering a shared vision and understanding of future research goals and outcome.
