i3P Innovation Investment Priorities Report
The i3P Strategy Board initiated research work on behalf of i3P in early 2019 to ‘identify and agree the innovation investment priorities for the sector that will drive most value, and where there is the greatest opportunity for transformational change’.
The research findings were reviewed at an industry workshop in June which agreed and endorsed a Framework in which to locate future innovation projects. The Framework enables investment gaps to be identified that if addressed will help meet the industry’s Construction 2025 aspirations. This was done in the context of the UK’s Transforming Construction Challenge, which tasks the industry to become more productive, delivering increased lifetime value by increasing the digitisation of, and the application of manufacturing techniques in the industry.
The Report recommended 4 strategic priority themes that the industry must focus on order to deliver on the aspirations of the Transforming Construction agenda:
- Articulating Demand – Capable Clients;
- Addressing the Supply side – Industrialise;
- Preparing construction for a zero -carbon world;
- Ensuring health, safety and well-being for all.
In addition, the Report recommended 6 industry actions where the i3P membership committed to collaborate on in order to underpin transformational change in the sector.
