Welcome to the latest edition of UK Construction Excellence.
In this issue we look at the growth of sustainable construction and green building. From efficiencies in energy, to reducing carbon emissions, the construction industry can play a large part in helping the UK hit its climate targets, now and into the future.
The shape of UK green ambitions will be hugely influenced by construction and infrastructure, for example with the growth of electric vehicles, homes will need to adapt to accommodate this surge in electrical usage.
Sustainability isn’t all about the materials we use and the way we construct; but sustainability of skills and communities is of ever increasing importance. We take a look at the sustainable community being developed in Devon – Sherford – and how it is planning for the future.
Last month saw UKCE, together with the infrastructure community, gather at the NEC for the UK Infrastructure Show 2018. The day featured lots of interesting discussions and collaborations taking place, with some of the biggest infrastructure projects in Europe on show, discussing their opportunities for the supply chain.
