Construction and Infrastructure

UK construction is leading the way


The UK offers expertise in sustainable infrastructure design, regulation and construction, combined with innovations that deliver a low carbon future. There are numerous domestic opportunities for potential investors in areas such as mining, construction, rail and water. These opportunities are being supported by new policies and funding. UK infrastructure is forecast to grow by 3.7% CAGR between 2020 to 2030 which is the fourth fastest in the world. UK companies have experience in management and construction of mega-projects including the Dubai World Expo 2020 to 2021 and Lima 2019 Pan American Games​.

UK Construction companies are partnering with the Gulf

Concrete Canvas

Concrete Canvas LTD manufactures several innovative construction materials, notably Concrete Canvas (CC). This material is a flexible, concrete-filled fabric that hardens when hydrated, providing a cost-effective alternative to conventional concrete. Concrete Canvas have utilised sales partners to distribute their products in over 100 countries around the world, including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the majority of countries across the GCC. Benefits of working with the Gulf region include the scale of projects and the appetite for adopting innovative technologies rather than using traditional concrete solutions. From Concrete Canvas' perspective, the UK's construction and infrastructure sector “boasts vital strengths and capabilities that position the nation as a premier destination for collaboration and innovation”.

We see the Gulf region as a key area for growth in the future, having many of the largest infrastructure projects in the world being delivered there in the coming years.
