Novel research studies to find approaches to reduce the cost and time in technology and materials of construction has resulted in modern technologies including insulating concrete formwork, hebelex blocks materials, roof technology of metal deck, Light Steel Framing and Rebar butt forge welding process. Investigation of the new technologies for construction in terms of the cost and time is the purpose of this paper. At first, these technologies are introduced. Then elements, restrictions and some unique special features of this system are presented. In addition, these technologies are studied in an important regarded for the optimization parameters including the cost and time. This paper provides a quantitative, qualitative and relative comparison between different techniques. Furthermore, new optimized technologies are determined and other new technologies for the investigating factors of optimization are suggested.
