Why the UK for Infrastructure?

The Global leader in the digital delivery of the built environment

  • The UK's innovative digital construction approach is built on creating standards that prioritse the needs of infrastructure buyers, owners and users. These standards have become global benchmarks, revolutionising the industry and benefiting building and infrastructure stakeholders

  • The UK's approach addresses global challenges like climate resilience and achieving a net-zero built environment.

  • Globally recognised standards, including by ISO, enable unified definitions, procurement and project delivery. The Common Data Environment (CDE), the core of the UK's digital construction method, promotes collaboration, facilitating trade and communication between local and international partners and buyers.

Railway opportunity and capability

  • The UK has a national rail infrastructure pipeline worth over £100bn – the greatest investment in the sector in over a century, including Integrated Rail Plan and Rail Maintenance and Renewals. Alongside investment, UK rail operators are seeking to procure £35 billion of new equipment and services over the next 15 years. This means expanding the supply chain by 140%, with a key focus on overhead electrification, battery, and hydrogen trains (Rail Delivery Group, 2019)

  • Doncaster, the place that created high-speed rail, is at the centre of developing the next generation of rail travel with a high-speed college and numerous suppliers.  Doncaster is home to a highly integrated supply chain, with over 50 rail companies employing over 8,000 rail employees

  • The region is leading the way in the decarbonisation of rail travel through the Siemens facility only 20 miles away in Goole
