What Qualifies as R&D
in The Construction

Construction is a challenging sector. During any project many things can happen, such as, delays, uncertainty, unforeseen difficulties or just a change in direction.
R&D is all about seeking advances, overcoming obstacles, and resolving uncertainty. Many construction or engineering projects have a combination of all these things. In Construction, R&D usually relates to the innovative use of materials or overcoming problems on site. There are often unique circumstances in which only a bespoke solution suffices.
