Manufacturing, pharmaceutical and technology sectors can all boast reputations as leaders of innovation, yet the construction industry is lagging behind. Are these industries doing something different, or has construction just not seen the same opportunities?

The UK Construction Industry is now moving forward under a joint strategy with the UK government, Construction 2025, to transform the industry into a global leader by reducing costs, improving delivery time frames and reducing carbon within construction. To achieve these goals innovation has vital role to play.

In this webinar, ICE President David Balmforth and his Apprentices will share their key findings on:

  • blockers to innovation in the construction industry
  • how we can enable, systematise, and foster a culture around innovation
  • steps we can all take to help transform the UK engineering and construction industry to create better value and meet the UK’s infrastructure needs.
