Daewoo E&C opened the Daewoo E&C Institute of Construction Technology (DICT), the first research institute in South Korea’s
construction industry, in 1983. Since then, DICT has actively engaged in sector research that maximizes the company’s design, construction
and development capabilities. DICT is also carrying out large-scale national, future growth and other projects,
contributing to the nation’s overall construction technological prowess.
In addition to enhancing the technological competitiveness of the company,
the DICT has led the development of global construction technology for the sector.
Daewoo E&C is catalyzing the rapid advancement of the “Digital Transformation” of the construction industry by combining key technologies
of the Fourth Industrial Revolution with proven construction technologies. Creating a roadmap for responding to the Fourth Industrial Revolution,
we are focusing on discovering technologies that will adapt to new businesses through future market analysis.
Daewoo E&C has created the DSC system, which integrates construction and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) into each phase of the planning, design, procurement, construction, and maintenance.
Daewoo E&C began proactive research into using drones in construction
sites, making us a forerunner in this emerging use of technology.
We focused on “construction surveying” which led to the application of
patents for displacement measurement methods using drones and
flat land creation methods. We have also produced advanced survey
results that far exceed the existing manpower survey levels by realizing
the 3D modeling of construction sites.
Pre-construction, or pre-con, is a technique employed at the
initial project stage to simulate overall design, cost, process, quality
and other factors with the participation of builders
construction engineer in charge of actual construction.
Daewoo E&C is realizing people’s dreams for a cleaner tomorrow. We are promoting the marriage of construction and nature
through the development of technologies that maximize energy efficiency and enhance new and renewable energy.
Daewoo E&C will realize the construction of Zero Energy House, featuring 100% energy self-sufficiency by combining passive technology that minimizes a building’s energy use with active technology that supplies energy.
Developed by Daewoo E&C, the Prefabricated Segmental
Concrete-Filled Tube (CFT) Bridge System manufactures CFT - a typical
composite material - as standard modules which are then combined to assemble superstructures and substructures utilizing the prefabricated
construction method specifically suited to the unique topographical
conditions of the bridge. Furthermore, the system is eco-friendly and
economical, as onsite work time is minimized thereby limiting overall
The DECO2 (Daewoo Elimination of CO2) technology, developed by
Daewoo E&C for the first time in South Korea, captures the CO2 emitted
from industrial chimneys and utilizes as a construction material while
safely and permanently storing CO2. Daewoo plans to respond further
to climate change by linking GHG reduction and recycling
with construction materials in the future.
Daewoo E&C is taking on limitless challenges, ranging from the deepest parts of the sea to the highest of altitudes.
By developing technology to overcome extreme environments, we are discovering future resources, connecting spaces and building urban landmarks.
Daewoo E&C is capable of independently designing, constructing and inspecting storage tanks to store large amounts of LNG at extremely low temperatures.
Subsea pipelines require robust designs and highly sophisticated, comprehensive engineering technologies to withstand waves, tidal currents, earthquakes,
marine landslides and other natural disasters. In 2016, Daewoo E&C independently developed South Korea’s first submarine pipeline design technology,
securing an basic technology to meet global standards.
