The UK has some huge construction and infrastructure projects underway relating to energy, transport, waste, water, housing, regeneration and social infrastructure. These present opportunities for companies to produce innovative solutions to the infrastructure and construction challenges we’re faced with.
Moreover, the drive for the UK to become a low-carbon economy to tackle climate change presents innovators with the opportunity to tackle these challenges head-on. Challenges like load balancing on the power network to cope with the proliferation of electric vehicles, or the need to build more heat-efficient homes, require technical solutions which will have high commercial value to the industry as a whole.
