Welcome Message

A creator of future values for the homeland!

KICT will contribute to resolving social issues, creating jobs, and innovative growth through construction R&D projects closely associated with citizens’ living.

Greetings!
This is Seung Heon Han, President of the Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology.

We are witnessing a recent paradigm shift in construction technology, from hardware technology development as a conventional concept to build and maintain social infrastructure and residential environments efficiently to lifecycle package technology development that extends to soft infrastructure such as institutions, standards, policies, and markets.

Accordingly, new convergent technologies centered on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, such as smart cities, intelligent construction robots, and virtual architecture, are becoming increasingly important, and so is the necessity of robust, reliable construction technologies in our daily lives.

KICT marks its 35th anniversary in 2018, or 70 years if one counts its former body, the National Construction Laboratory Institute. As the only national research institute in construction, KICT has been true to and successful in fulfilling its role in the development of the construction industry.

KICT aims to resolve the current issues and challenges in construction technology to allow citizens to live more convenient, safe, and healthy lives in our land and residential environment, make bold challenges to future issues, and present visions to improve the competitiveness of the homeland and society’s potential for innovative growth, thereby contributing to improving the quality of citizens’ lives.

KICT will be pioneering the path to ensure citizens’ happiness. Your continued interest and support will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

PresidentSeung Heon Han
