The built environment and construction industry face constant external and internal challenges that require a systemic approach to innovation to turn these challenges into opportunity. Innovation is vital to driving continuous improvement and to achieve our net zero ambitions, although it often suffers from hype with a lot of noise and a lack of implementation.
Consultation with our members has identified a space for Constructing Excellence members to come together with innovators and researchers to explore innovation and its wider context. Led by Ben Pritchard, Head of Innovation Management at Invennt, the Innovation Exchange will meet regularly, either online or through visits to inspiring innovative places and organisations, to jointly explore how to move from innovation to mainstream.
To give opportunity for innovators and researchers to share and explore ideas, learn from each other and consider how the innovation can move to implementation.
