Infrastructure investment soars in UK
Infrastructure investment is soaring in the UK. In November 2018, the government published its National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline confirming a massive investment into our transport systems, social infrastructure, hospitals and schools.
Some £600Bn has been promised to fund infrastructure development over the next ten years, and alongside the push to create millions of homes for Britons, there has never been a better time for your business to be part of this high-profile sector.
The vast scale of public and private investment covers such massive undertakings as the Thames Tideway Tunnel, Crossrail, the proposed Lower Thames Crossing, and of course, High Speed Rail, as well as the largest ever investment in the Strategic Road Network – some £28Bn, and flagship projects like East West Rail, upgrading of the M6 to a smart motorway, and Hornsea Project One – the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
To ensure maximum efficiency in building these projects, ministers are encouraging greater use of more modern approaches to construction. This includes the manufacturing of components in factories using the latest digital technology before being sent for assembly on construction sites.
Despite significant contributions to the UK economy, the construction sector’s productivity is weak compared to other sectors like manufacturing. Applying modern manufacturing approaches to building projects can boost productivity and reduce waste by as much as 90%. For example, a school that typically takes a year to build could be completed in just over four months.
There has never been a better time for your business to be part of this high-profile sector.
