    Personal profile


    Dr Dingayo Mzyece, aka “Din” is a registered quantity surveyor by profession. During the earlier part of his career, Dingayo worked on a number of projects ranging from: mixed-use developments, commercial office buildings, service stations for British Petroleum (BP); to undertaking early feasibility studies for the decommissioning of an oil plant for BP; and construction/remodelling of a car showroom for Toyota. Dingayo also worked on public projects such as schools, hospitals and various refurbishment works that included demolition and repurposing of the facility.


    Now, a keen academic and researcher, Dingayo is interested in researching topics in construction, with particular focus on health and safety, digitalisation, building information modelling (BIM), augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI), among others. For his PhD, Dingayo conducted an investigation into the implementation of the Construction (Design and Management) regulations in the UK construction industry at the University of Wolverhampton (2015). He also holds a Master of Science (MSc) degree from the University of Bath (2008); and a BSc degree in Building (‘Quantity Surveying and Construction Management’, 2003). Dr Mzyece also contributes to various scientific journals as a peer reviewer and co-/author, e.g. Safety Science; Engineering Construction and Architectural Management (ECAM); Construction Management and Economics (CME); Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers – Management, Practice and Law (MPL); and Construction Innovation.


    Prior to joining Coventry University, Dingayo worked for Oxford Brookes University and Liverpool John Moores University in the role of Senior Lecturer in Quantity Surveying, respectively.

    Research Interests

    Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) in construction; Building Information Modelling (BIM); digital twins; smart sensors; augmented reality (AR); artificial intelligence (AI) in construction; and contract administration, practice and law.

    Vision Statement

    Given the need for accurate data to inform cost and budgets of projects, the construction industry, in the next two decades or so, is expected to embrace the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0); and therefore will bring about the much needed change, advancing the manner in which projects are procured, thereby improving the predictability of project completion cost and time. With this in mind, my research focus will consider how the construction industry can embrace the fourth industrial revolution; of course, notwithstanding some of the Industry 4.0 implementation ‘hurdles’ that must be crossed.
