The ever increasing number and diversity of professionals and researchers involved in the construction industry can make effective collaboration difficult. This paper looks at some of the problems which these groups may face by making the distinction between multi- and inter-disciplinary research more apparent. The themes which it raises have important implications for education and collaboration within academia and with industrial partners. Two research projects are used as case studies to illustrate some of the issues and to try to prove the concept and usefulness of inter-disciplinary or mode 2 research for application to the built environment field. These projects are From 3D to nD Modelling an EPSRC-funded platform grant implementing integrated computer construction models and BEQUEST an EU-funded concerted action investigating the assessment of sustainable urban development. The output of the two From 3D to nD Modelling workshops demonstrates that the conflicts inherent in multi-disciplinary collaborative working need to be considered and managed, but that presently, there is little available information on how to do this.
