Building the Future, the latest in our on-going series on UK construction, broadcast recently on Sky 189.

Building the Future explores the industrial strategy needed to improve the productivity, quality and sustainability of our vital construction industry. We look at how the industry is innovating, using new smart technology and the roll out of Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Astudio, award winning, socially enterprising architects, discuss their research into using algae to create biomass and how to incorporate this into buildings. They also run through their fascinating 63,000 homes project, aiming to build homes modularly to address the housing crisis.

Flexible Space, create under-floor air condition systems, which mean buildings can reduce their size and environmental impact by around 10%. They also discuss how cities and urban spaces can be developed cater for increased demands more effectively.

Churngold Construction, specialise in health and safety within construction and in preparing groundwork sites for development. They offered great insight into BIM and in the long-term strategy for the construction industry.

This programme also features the CEO’s of both The Construction Industry Council and Design Council who discuss sustainability, the housing crisis and the importance of design within construction.
