Innovation is characterized by having a positive, important effect on construction or service, improving quality and reducing time or cost.
- Recognizing and publicizing innovation encourages awareness and earlier adoption of innovations in an industry where it can currently take 30 years before an innovation is commonly accepted.
- The best way for anyone to recognize and reward an innovation is to submit it for nomination for the NOVA Award.
- CIF is pleased to provide free searchable online access to well over 700 innovations in the construction industry, along with a Nominations Index and a NOVA Awards Index.
- Additional information on innovation is available in the online Annotated Bibliography of Construction Innovation, including more than 60 references.
