The Construction Group is currently being reformed by Atkins, the NCC and the CLF. It aims to connect across:
- Key construction bodies including I3P, ICE and RIBA;
- Key government bodies including Innovate UK and the KTN; and
- End users including Network Rail and the Highways Agency
Aim: will be defined by new group, once established, but the main challenges surround market education, adoption, Regs & Standards and life cycles assessment i.e. initial cost vs lifetime cost
The group’s first challenge after reforming is to complete a sector road map to enable the group to focus resources on the key drivers and supply chain elements to ensure the success of the sector.
