Innovation in construction is a subject being discussed during a considerable
period of time. However current research and statistical data shows that construction is
lagging behind other sectors in the aspects of productivity and efficiency for which lack of
innovation is blamed. This paper is an effort to illustrate present status of construction
innovation research and perceptions of researchers and practitioners based on a review of
current literature. Emphasis was placed on identifying the prevailing nature of construction
innovation with reference to enabling and disabling factors and ways to improve the
performance of construction to address the stakeholder needs.
