WELCOME to the January edition of UK Construction Excellence.
2017 certainly held many ups and downs in our sector, from stalling productivity and the continuing housing crisis, to the breakthrough technologies and advances being made in digitisation, the construction industry is not standing still.
This month we look at some of those breakthrough technologies, and the benefits of both Virtual and Augmented Reality in the industry.
Late 2017 saw the launch of the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline. and we see which projects will be pushed forward, with £600Bn worth of investment confirmed.
Finally, as we creep closer to the advent of GDPR, cyber security is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. In this issue, we look at how businesses can start to prepare their data.
And, as always, we catch up with the latest contract news, industry movers and our guest contributors, inside.
