A team from a Norwich construction consultancy has presented to the European Commission the findings of a project to transform the building site of the future.

Ingleton Wood showcased its Accept initiative, which has tested the latest technology with the aim of improving the performance gap on building projects.

The firm selected three Broadland Housing Association building sites, in Bodham, Trunch and Great Ryburgh, to trial the technology, which included the use of apps for smart glasses, tablets and consultants’ desktops.

The Commission has agreed to push ahead with a business case and fund a suite of three apps.

John Dixon, partner at Ingleton Wood, said: “With the support from the European Union, we are excited to now progress to the next stage of the apps’ development, helping to revolutionise the future of building sites.”
