Dr Kwadwo Oti-Sarpong

Research background

My research focuses on technology adoption in construction organizations and project settings. For my PhD at the University of Hong Kong, I examined the sociotechnical interactions in a project-based ‘technology transfer’ attempt. Post-PhD, I investigated how SME contractors were responding to the Hong Kong government’s BIM mandate for public projects.
