In July 2013, the government and construction industry leaders worked together to create Construction 2025 - a strategy aimed at developing ‘a clear and defined set of aspirations for UK construction’ by 2025.
What are the targets for Construction 2025?
• 33% reduction in both the initial cost of construction and the whole-life cost of assets;
• 50% reduction in the overall time from inception to completion for new build and refurbished assets;
• 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment;
• 50% reduction in the trade gap between total exports and total imports for construction products and materials.
The strategy is broken down into five key themes and commitments to help industry meet these set targets; people, smart, sustainable, growth and leadership.
