London’s successful growth: Skills and diversity briefing

An overview of the opportunities and challenges facing London’s construction workforce.

By 2050, London will have a population of over 11 million and require £1.4 trillion in infrastructure investment.

How can we prepare our infrastructure systems for a growing city? How can we ensure London is able to cater for this growth whilst protecting its environment, maintaining living standards and remaining an attractive place to live, visit and do business?

The London's Successful Growth Briefings seek to give an overview of the future opportunities and challenges London will face in each sector.

London's Successful Growth: Skills and Diversity explores the growing skills gap in London in the construction sector. The Briefing examines the possible effects of Brexit as well as the need to improve the diversity of civil engineers so that the industry can better represent the public it serves.
