In recent years, China’s construction industry has faced looming problems such as sloppy production methods and environmental pollution. Then the initiative of ‘synergistic development of intelligent construction and construction industrialization (ICCI)’ was proposed, which brings new opportunities for the transformation and upgrading and high-quality development of the construction industry. However, the synergy degree in the development of ICCI cannot be measured by the senses. Therefore, this study is devoted to quantitative analysis of the synergy degree in the development of ICCI by establishing a mathematical model. The concept of the synergy degree in the development of ICCI is defined based on synergetics. CiteSpace software is used to determine the five basic elements of talent, technology, information, environment and policy for the synergistic development of ICCI. Based on this, building a mechanism for synergistic development of ICCI with the Driving Force-State-Response (DFSR) model. Establishing an evaluation index system for the synergy degree in the development of ICCI through expert interviews. Then, combining entropy power method and coupling coordination model to empirically analyse the synergy degree in the development of ICCI in Shenyang. The results show that Shenyang is currently at the stage of high-level coupling and high-quality synergy, which is consistent with the actual development. It is also confirmed that the evaluation system of the synergy degree in the development of ICCI is scientific and reasonable. Finally, this study summarizes the suggestions for different levels of the synergy degree in the development of ICCI, which provides a reference for each region to better promote the synergistic development of ICCI.
