The Construction 2025 Industrial Strategy provides a vision of how the industry and government will work together to transform and grow the construction sector over the next decade. The targets of the strategy are clear;

·                     a 33% reduction in both the initial cost of construction and the whole life cost of assets;

·                     a 50% reduction in overall time from inception to completion for new build and refurbished assets;

·                     a 50% reduction in carbon emissions;

·                     a 50% reduction in the trade gap between total exports and imports of construction products and materials.

The 2025 Construction Strategy was debated in detail at the inaugural Midlands Construction Summit in 2014- so what has changed in the past 12 months?

What was once a backward looking sector is now stepping into the modern world and looking forward, planning the transition to a low-carbon environment through the utilisation of advanced technology and the growth of a thriving British economy.

This year the Midlands Construction Summit will return on 06 October at the NEC, Birmingham to help the Midlands built environment sector reflect on industry changes made in the past 12 months as well as developing the regional construction strategy and identifying leadership opportunities.
