Innovation in the Construction Industry: 2017 Seminar Programme Launch


Following a successful programme of industry seminars and events in 2016, Kreisson will be launching the 2017 Seminar Programme with featured presenter Professor Andrew Harris.

Andrew leads Laing O¹Rourke’s global centre of excellence, which aims to transform the company¹s capabilities through innovation, R&D and enhanced technical performance. Much of this is centred on identifying, developing and deploying new technologies across a traditional and risk averse business.

Andrew will explore some of the lessons from being an entrepreneur within a business, and will show the value of innovation.


Professor Andrew Harris  is a Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The University of Sydney, and the Australian director of Laing O’Rourke’s future engineering and innovation consultancy, the Engineering Excellence Group.
