The continuous growth in the construction industry due to the increasing demand has imposed substantial economic and environmental implications. This has motivated significant research efforts on novel materials and their applications in construction for a more sustainable, economic, greener and durable built environment. Innovative building material research has achieved significant leaps over the last decade. This conference is the third of a planned series of conferences aiming at gathering and sharing multi – scale thematic researches on innovative building materials ranging from altering material properties at the nano scale to enhancing the performance of macro elements and structural systems. The conference will include research paper sessions and professional workshops.
