Roine Leiringer is an Associate Professor in the Department of Real Estate and Construction at The University of Hong Kong. He holds an MSc in Civil Engineering and a PhD in Industrial Economics and Management from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. In 2010 he was awarded the academic grade Docent at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. In research, Roine is committed to critical perspectives. Early research interests were in the areas of Public-Private Partnerships and innovation. Recently much of his research has been in the following five areas:

  1. ‘service-led construction projects’, investigating the strategic implications for firms shifting from product manufacturing to being providers of through-life service offerings;
  2. The impact of government policy and reform initiatives on firms and actors active in the creation of the built environment;
  3. Sustainability, in particular how individuals in construction organisations are incentivized (or not) to incorporate sustainability into their daily work;
  4. The fit between existing school facilities and the introduction of new ideas, tools and technologies;
  5. Client capabilities – what capabilities do public sector clients need in order to effectively procure and manage their capital projects?

Roine is: co-editor of Construction Management and Economics; Committee member (Secretary) of the Construction Researchers on Economics and Organisation in the Nordic region (CREON) Network; joint coordinator of CIB Task Group 84 on ‘Construction Reform’; and co-founder and co-director of the West Africa Built Environment Research (WABER) conference series.
