The Northern Powerhouse and the impact on the construction industry
In November 2015, a group of industry leaders from construction companies and supporting services, met at MediaCity UK, Manchester. What followed was an interesting discussion around the concept of the Northern Powerhouse and the potential impact it could have on the construction industry.
The whitepaper covers discussion points such as:
- How the North is getting connected
- A springboard for a smarter industry
- Is the North in need of change or ready for it?
- What the ideal Northern Powerhouse might look like
