The UK is home to cutting edge technology for the design and delivery of low carbon, environmentally sensitive products, materials, plant and equipment.
The UK’s professional services are among the best in the world. From consultancy and design to engineering and project management, the construction sector upholds the highest ethical, environmental and professional standards.
Internationally respected standards
The UK’s BREEAM was the world’s first method to assess building sustainability - it still leads the way. BREEAM rated buildings enhance wellbeing, help protect the environment and are more attractive to investors.
The model to follow
Building Information Modelling (BIM) allows everyone on a project to work together digitally from one set of information, improving collaboration and reducing risk. The UK’s BIM standard has been adopted as International Standard ISO 19650.
Investing in innovation
Between 2018 and 2022, the UK will invest 72 million GBP in the construction industry’s digital transformation. This includes funding for the Centre for Digital Built Britain – a partnership between the UK government and the University of Cambridge.
