Why Do We Need Construction Research?

I believe that the UK needs many different kinds of construction R&D. Research that leads to new products, underlies regulation for public safety, gives confidence for individual construction projects, improves the efficiency of construction firms, or develops fundamental theory, is all valuable. But perhaps most important is that research which leads to authoritative state-of-the-art guidance documents to good practice which construction professionals can have in their intellectual tool-kit.
