CIB W117 is a working commission of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction CIB. The objective of the research group is to document and explore the potential use of performance information to improve the state of all stakeholders and their organizations in the construction industry supply chain.
CIBw117 differs from most CIB Commissions and traditional research groups which are more science driven, while W117 is more concept and impact driven. It has been one of the most successful CIB Commission in bridging the gap between the construction industry practice and academic research. It has been prolific in publishing and running research tests with industry partners. W117 partnered with PBSRG has published over 300 papers and generated licensed technology (54 licenses from AZTech, the licensing body of ASU for intellectual property rights). It is the most licensed technology from the most innovative university in the U.S. (as rated by U.S. News and World Report (2016))
