The construction industry in the UK is one of the major employers, involving many different firms and professional bodies, and it comprises of a wide range of products, services and technologies. Nonetheless, for many decades the industry has suffered several structural challenges, such as low investments in R&D and innovation, fragmentation of supply, and a lack of collaboration. In order to find solutions to these issues, the Government has implemented an Industrial Strategy, which aims to foster supply chain integration, by enhancing investment in innovation. Another specific purpose is to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM), in order to reach more efficiency and sustainability, predictable delivery of buildings, and off-site manufacturing.
