Innovate UK announce £12.5m competition for Transforming Construction Programme

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £12.5 million in innovative projects to transform the UK construction sector.

The aim of this competition is to invest in solutions to improve productivity, quality and performance of the UK construction sector. We are specifically looking for projects to improve the 3 core stages of the construction lifecycle:

  1. Designing and managing buildings through digitally-enabled performance management.
  2. Constructing quality buildings using a manufacturing approach.
  3. Powering buildings with active energy components and improving build quality.

The results should lead to a streamlined process that saves costs, reduces delays and improves collaborations, productivity and outputs.

Projects must address the objectives of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund on Transforming Construction and show how they will contribute to its impact. We will prioritise projects which demonstrate cross-sector collaboration and scalable solutions.  For more information click here.
