firms are actually doing, but more what the firms are committed to fulfilling their personal and corporate responsibilities ( Epstein, 2018) . Moreover, it is also believed that the company should report their information publicly which show their commitment toward their responsibilities in accordance with the current legislation. P13 In the present day and age technological revolution, the methods of both construction and manufacturing have transformed largely. Over the last few decades, the construction industry has been consistently criticised for being inefficient and slow towards innovating the methods and techniques involved during different phases of construction ( Watkins, Papaioannou, Mugwagwa, and Kale, 2015) . In addition, the basic processes, techniques, and technologies have altered a little with time. However, the application of technology for innovating the construction industry does not seem to be straightforward. It is evident that every construction project is different in nature; the activities in a construction project are located at different places, which involve the consistent movement of individuals as well as the machinery. Additionally, there are various environmental factors including the weather, which can prevent the application of previously used construction methods effectively. The concept of “advanced construction technology” covers a broad range of technical methods and techniques that incorporate the application of latest advancements in terms of material technology, design procedures, facilities management, quantity surveying, service delivery, structural design, and analysis. Moreover, the integration of technology in the domain of construction could turn out to be effective in increasing the level of quality, safety,

However, there is a conflict between the conventional and innovative methods of new practices, which is often liable for the slow progress of the technology transfer within the construction industry. To illustrate, the adoption of the “advanced construction technology” needs an appropriate commitment and design from the project team ensuring the fulfilment of proper strategies, effective quality control, training, and vigilant commissioning. There is a significant extent to which the research and development are to be accomplished in terms of the advancement of the systematic approach in construction. Despite the limitations, the system models, adopted in modern building construction, have delivered a vast improvement in the health, safety, and durability of buildings. Due to this, the study of building science is now identified in most of the developed nations as one of the essentials of technical training for architects. The major reason for this issue seems to be the explanation regarding how buildings work and recognising the reasons for the project failure.
