NAIT Centre for Construction Innovation

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) is a polytechnic and applied sciences institute in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. NAIT provides careers programs in applied research, technical training, applied education, and learning designed to meet the demands of Alberta’s technical and knowledge-based industries. This session will feature Ryan Leskiw, Director of Research Integration at NAIT who will talk about the new Centre for Construction Innovation (CCI) that will be anchored in NAIT’s recently completed 190,000 square feet Productivity and Innovation Centre – one of North America’s largest innovation spaces – and a 160 acre outdoor “sandbox” for testing, prefabrication, full scale mock-ups and more.

The Centre is envisaged as the Western Canadian construction industry’s gateway to the future. From AI-powered building technologies to industrial robotics, the opportunities for innovation in construction are limitless. Working with partner companies and organisations  Ryan will discuss how the Centre will collaborate with the best in engineering, science and business in Canada and around the world to transform original ideas into practical applications.
