Pressure is intensifying around the construction industry as we enter a period of significant growth, fuelled by the government’s ambitious target to provide 300,000 new homes by the mid-2020s.
On top of this, the construction industry must deliver major infrastructure projects such as HS2, Thames Tideway, Hinckley Point, Crossrail 2, and the Heathrow Third Runway.
Other industries have clearly demonstrated how adopting new technologies can play a major part in modernisation but with only 64% of hours worked considered productive – the construction industry is showing little signs of improvement.
The Construction Productivity Conference at the De Vere, Canary Wharf, on 21 November, will offer insight into strategies that can overcome the growing concerns surrounding productivity in the built environment.
The Construction Productivity Conference will address inefficiencies and poor productivity through upskilling, AV and VR technology, IT department training and new offsite technology/practices.
Focusing on new technologies, logistics, supply chains, material management and developing human resources, the conference will provide a space to demonstrate new digital technologies and opportunities to network with industry leaders and suppliers.
Tickets cost £195 + VAT per person including lunch and refreshments. For more information on the high-profile speaker line up and to book online go to: www.constructionproductivity.co.uk
