The INSEE i2i Collaboration Space is– a dedicated centre of excellence that develops and promotes new products and solutions for the building and construction industry with a focus on creating shared values and efficient sustainable solutions for Sri Lanka.
This is an innovation-friendly ecosystem comprising networking and working spaces, an auditorium, and four functional spaces equipped with over 50 state of the art tools and equipment for testing. These include around 15 new tests that are new to the local construction industry.
Located in Peliyagoda, the state-of-the-art facility promotes collaboration between engineers, researchers, students, innovators, architects, and academics as well as professional bodies, industry and technical experts and even market competitors, all with a common goal; connecting industry partners to speed up new technology transfer for the advancement of the local construction industry.
The Knowledge Space acts as an information library, sharing information and expertise on global construction trends and advanced technologies via a series of Knowledge Sharing Sessions by industry and INSEE experts every last Thursday of the month. From packed auditorium sessions, we have introduced online webinars that regularly draw over 200 participants who represent the building and construction industry community. These sessions are jointly organized with the Institute of Engineers Sri Lanka (IESL). Lecture topics range from global trends to local industry challenges, and focus on seamlessly transfering knowledge and expertise in an open, informal environment.
