Social infrastructure, including clinics, schools and student accommodation, will be constructed using innovative building technologies (IBTs), which can reduce costs by up to 41% and construction time by up to 50%, says research organisation Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) Built Environment Unit principal researcher Llewellyn van Wyk. IBTs are a range of alternative building technologies – generally framed panels fabricated offsite and assembled onsite. They are classified according to mass, into heavy or light materials, and onsite or offsite fabrication.
