GIRI Technology Research Report: Harnessing Technology to Minimise Error

This report collects research led by the GIRI Technology Working Group investigating how technology can be harnessed to eliminate error, key areas worth pursuing and recommendations for application. The research was undertaken by Paul Trewavas CEng MICE, formerly of Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd.

This report focuses on the five topics identified by GIRI which are the principal areas in which technology can be used to eliminate error: Offsite Manufacture, Standardisation, Improved Construction Processes, Error-Minimising Components and Automation. The report summaries current technology utilisation related to error minimisation and recommends further investigation.
