With tight margins and growing competition, the UK’s construction industry is challenged with delivering solutions that increase productivity, safety, value and sustainability, with government environmental targets driving new thinking around materials and technology.
These challenges are seeing the construction industry adapting processes and practices developed for manufacturing, such as automation, to not only reduce costs and improve safety standards, but keep projects on-schedule.
As a major source of pollution, innovation in construction is largely driven by the global drive to tackle climate change, resulting in businesses developing sustainable – and highly commercial – technical solutions across tools, materials, fixings, testing, monitoring and safety solutions.
The construction team at HGF has a diverse range of academic and commercial experience in working with large civil and mechanical engineering organisations, along with SMEs contracted to deliver solutions. Tapping into the firm’s electronics expertise when digital technology is involved, the engineering specialists deliver multidisciplinary IP strategies that span patents, trade mark protection, copyright, FTO, enforcement and transactions.
