  • The National Construction Expo, which is being held in the Arena MK, Milton Keynes on 6th May 2020, will show how the construction industry can meet the challenges facing a modern Britain by adopting
    innovative technologies and techniques in order to design and construct the sustainable buildings and infrastructure required by a growing population and to help businesses adapt to the challenges of the
    unfolding fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0).

    Employing over 2.5 million people, the construction industry contributes over £110 billion annually to the UK economy, equating to about 6% of total economic output. However, a radical improvement. in the
    overall performance of the industry is required if the UK is to successfully complete the greatest construction programmes in its history, entailing investment of more than £600 billion over a decade, with at
    least £44 billion for housing. This will encompass building more homes that are affordable in the places where people want to live and delivering major infrastructure projects such as Crossrail.
    The Government has set ambitious targets for the industry in its Construction 2025 strategy including:
    • 33% reduction in both initial cost of construction and the whole life cost of assets from 2010/09 levels;
    • 50% reduction in the overall time from inception to completion for new build and refurbished asses (based on industry standard in 2013);
    • 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment compared to 1990;
    • 50% reduction in the trade gap between total exports and total imports for construction products and materials (from February 2013 deficit of £6 billion).

    The National Construction Expo will highlight some of the innovative technologies and ways of achieving a more highly skilled workforce in order to transform the industry’s productivity across all major –
    housing, infrastructure, repairs and maintenance.

    With its comprehensive Conference agenda along with a series of seminars and workshops, accompanied by an extensive array of exhibition stands, showcasing the latest products, services and technology for
    the construction, engineering, sustainable building, maintenance and architectural sectors, the National Construction Expo and its co-located events will cover the following:
    • Digital technologies to enhance the efficiency of construction techniques – eg Building Information Modelling (BIM), sensors, data analytics and smart systems technologies and the Information Management
    Landscape (IML);
    • Offsite manufacturing technologies to minimise the wastage and inefficiencies associated with onsite construction, and to speed up the construction process and reduce disruption;
    • Manufacturing technologies and production systems necessary for developing and delivering new digital building designs;
    • Energy generation and storage technologies to reduce the running costs of buildings;
    • The development of digital building designs for use in procurement for infrastructure projects;
    • How to adopt a whole life asset performance approach to change from focusing on the costs of construction to the costs of a building across its life cycle;
    • Construction 4.0 and AI for design and build.

    The National Construction Expo 2020 in conjunction with its complementary, co-located events will attempt to present solutions to these challenges, by providing a forum for key stakeholders across the industry to gather to discuss pressing issues, enhance knowledge and provide a networking opportunity for those involved in the finance, design, construction and management of the UK’s buildings, infrastructure and industrial projects.
