Infrastructure Visit 2018

UK Infrastructure Show (photo by Shirley Radford)We had the pleasure of visiting the UK Infrastructure Show last week and were pleased to see that there we quite a few major construction works being planned around the UK. This goes along with what we are hearing in the news regarding construction being 'on the up'.

There were not as many distributors and stands as normal at this event; however what was there was relevant to the industry and interesting. Additionally the break out areas and keynote talks were thought-provoking and of high quality which made for an enjoyable event.  

We were particularly pleased to see so much on BIM and health and safety as we feel these go hand in hand within design and construction. There was a large push on sustainability too which also shows that the industry is taking the global issues seriously.

For many smaller organisations this event gives them the chance to tender for the larger projects as long as you were members of certain supply chain partners. These are aimed at providing the best solutions for the client end whilst opening up opportunities for all parties who wish to tender for construction works.
