Concrete thinking: Innovating for the future

The UK concrete industry is continually innovating. It is significantly investing in research and development to expand the material’s potential to tackle the challenges facing modern society.  

This has helped concrete to become stronger and more adaptable, to reduce its carbon footprint and to embrace the digital technology that is revolutionising the way structures are built.

It’s also important to consider that there isn’t just one kind of concrete, but many different types that are constantly being refined and improved. These have been designed to address specific challenges, from sustainability and super-strength to coloured concretes that provide highly aesthetic finishes.
