IC3 Industry Consultation Workshop

IET London: Savoy Place


Book NowIC3 Industry Consultation Workshop London - 10 July 2019

The construction sector generates over £100 billion for the UK economy each year, and as such, is a key priority for the UK Government. So much so, in 2018 it pledged to invest up to £170million in the improvement of the sector. The aim is to address key challenges facing the industry – ineffective collaboration, focus on cost rather than value, health and safety issues, supply chain inefficiencies, and payment practices that disadvantage smaller businesses. 

Digital technologies will play a key role in addressing these issues, with the likes of cloud computing, Building Information Modelling, Virtual and Augmented Reality, blockchain enabled smart contracts and more. The UK has already taken a strong lead in this area, with a particular concentration of expertise in the North East of England. Effective collaboration between local government, universities and industry has led to a vibrant community driving innovation on an international level. 

It is for this reason that the North East Local Enterprise Partnership has commissioned Northumbria University to develop a business case for the International Centre for Connected Construction (IC3) based in Newcastle. The centre is a huge opportunity to build on existing expertise in digital construction, foster national collaboration, and help the UK become a global trailblazer in modernising the construction sector. 

In order to build the business case, Northumbria has been engaging with leaders in construction and digital technologies globally, from Newcastle to China. As a key region for digital construction expertise, we will be hosting a workshop for senior decision makers at the Institute of Engineering and Technology, Savoy Place, London on July 10th. We’d love it if you or another member of your team could come along to provide your input. You can sign up for the event for free using the form below or via the Book Now button above.
