It’s great to see that collaboration between the UK fields of Academia and Engineering can produce impressive advances for the Construction sector.
‘Concretene’, produced in joint venture between the University of Manchester and alumni-led construction firm Nationwide Engineering, requires 30% less material and removes all steel reinforcement.
Concretene can be used like standard concrete, meaning no new equipment or training is needed in the batching or laying process, and cost-savings can be passed directly to the client.
Yet another positive for the strong return and growth of the UK Engineering and Construction sectors with the increase in career opportunities and recruitment activity to match.
A particular advantage and incentive for all those currently with careers in the UK Construction and Engineering sectors and to those looking to enter is to engage with specialist recruiters who are established and knowledgable of the market.
