R&D Center

The R&D Center explores ways to create a more prosperous society through innovative construction technologies and know-how.

The R&D Center—Leading the Pack

Since its founding in September 1986, Lotte E&C’s R&D Center has consistently served important roles in supporting management, developing new technologies, finding new growth engines, cutting costs, and reducing construction time. The R&D Center is the source of company strategy in becoming one of Asia’s top-ten construction value creators.
Based on a wealth of experience in construction and project management, Lotte E&C has firmly secured core technologies in building ultra-high-rise structures, long bridges, and high value-added CM/PM projects. In addition, we are opening a new horizon in the construction industry by developing environmentally friendly technologies that make possible low-carbon green growth.
