Construct UK is delighted to be supporting Futurebuild once again. In order to celebrate the game changing ideas, products and services which are transforming the built environment, Futurebuild 2022 asked its exhibitors to enter the Big Innovation Pitch. After reviewing over 90 submissions, the judging panel has announced its six finalists, who will pitch their ideas live on the Conference Arena before the panel decides a winner at the end of day two — 2nd March 2022.
Futurebuild created The Big Innovation Pitch — the industry’s largest call-out for innovation — to celebrate the products and services that are solving the challenges currently facing the built environment and driving a net-zero future. Entrants were tasked with submitting a product or service that can help solve net zero, either by enabling circularity, reducing emissions or providing new ways to improve how we design and build.
The shortlisted innovations include:
The panel of experts is led by Oliver Jones, research and innovation director at Ryder Architecture. He is joined by Mike Lynch, climate solutions lead, operations at NatWest Group; Natasha Boulding, CEO and co-founder of net-zero materials developer Sphera; and Chris Hall, managing director of design and building consultancy Acivico Group.
“The quantity and quality of submissions to the Big Innovation Pitch shows just how exciting the construction innovation space is and proves that systemic change is already underway in the built environment industry,” explained Jones. “Our shortlist highlights products and technologies that provide social and environmental benefits, reduce operational and embodied emissions and support the circular economy. The innovation awards at Futurebuild enable us to share them with the wider community, accelerating our journey to net zero.”
