How the construction industry is reducing cost, risk and waste – with math

Andrew Watts, CEO of international building engineers, Newtecnic, looks at new research and practices that deliver construction industry innovation from concept to fabrication and operation.

Riskier Business?

Industry players and stakeholders are mistaken in the belief that new methods and technologies present increased risk. In fact, the opposite is true because by using technology it is possible to reduce risk while creating more imaginatively conceived buildings at lower cost that use less energy, are more durable, look better and are interesting to inhabit.
